A no objection certificate may be needed in the most sensitive of situations. This may include death of a parent or sibling, for whom you are one of the legal heirs. There are several different types of NOCs that you can write in a situation such as this, including one in which you give up rights to a property.
In such a case, you need to prepare a no objection certificate that clearly and articulately outlines the decision that you have taken. If you want, you can provide a reason for giving up rights to a property – remember that an NOC such as this is considered as a legal document and will prove to be instrumental during the property transfer procedure, so you have to make it sound professional.
While you may be provided with an NOC format from your lawyer, writing one of your own is not illegal. In fact, when you write your own, you have much more space to work on and play with words. If possible, write your NOC in a bullet form so that the content is easily understandable. Since you will have at least a couple of points to write, the bullet form makes much more sense than writing it in prose.
Here is an NOC format for property transfer purposes that might interest you.
