That would hardly happen, but if it did.

I would personally talk to my Business Analyst understand the functionality and refer the BRD documents that he or she prepared or prepare it myself and write Test Plan And Test Cases and execute them. 

One thing I can tell you if there is no documentation that would be a very bad practise.

if we dont have proper requirements then we have to see the screens once thoroughly and based on our previous project knowledge we will prepare test cases and also we are getting knowledge transfer from dev team and then we will write test cases

If we don't have proper requirement documents then we will follow adhoc testing depending on the previous experience to test the entire functionality of the application.

If there are no requirement documents to reference, then you can still create test cases:


Learn as much as possible from expert and knowledgeable stakeholders about end-user (customer or client) requirements.  You can begin authoring test cases based on this information.  You may or may not have a Business Analyst on the project.  If not, the Project Manager should be able to guide you in the right direction.    


Conduct exploratory testing and learn about the application while you author test cases.
