A Will is a legally obligatory document that accurately ensures what will happen to your property and assets after your demise. The Indian Succession Act 1925 says that anyone with a sound mind and 18+ years of age or who wants to bequeath their property to their close ones and for their comfort can make a will. In India, a Will can be either hand-written or typed. However, the 'typed' Will is more convincing if such situations arise. Especially if you have more than one legal heir, the absence of a Will may result in complications and doubts.

An owner can cancel or revoke their Will anytime before their death. However, life is full of uncertainties. The biggest uncertainty is death. So, don't take a chance when you can make everything clear now. Contact Legal251 and let our aces handle all your Will-related issues.

Secure Inheritance of your property by Will  

A Will acts as a crucial legal declaration to secure an inheritance for the heir. It allows one to explicitly designate who receives the property it can be a spouse, children, a chosen legatee, or a charity. A properly drafted and registered will eliminate ambiguity and potential disputes among the heirs after death.

In the absence of a Will, the process of intestacy comes into the role. This means the law dictates how the assets are to be distributed, which may not reflect the wishes of the one creating the will. Probate court becomes involved, which can be lengthy and expensive.

By creating a Will, one ensures his wishes are followed while distributing his property after his death. The designated heirs receive what is intended, and the process is significantly smoother during an already difficult time following the death of the testator. While not compulsory, a Will provides peace of mind knowing that the legacy is handled by the plan.

Will for transfer of Property  

A Will is a crucial legal document used to transfer property according to the testator (the person writing the Will) wishes after their death. It acts as a testamentary disposition, a legal declaration of the intentions of the testator regarding their property. Unlike a deed, which transfers property immediately, a Will takes effect only after the testator passes.

Without a Will, a person dies intestate, and the law dictates how their property (real estate, bank accounts, investments like mutual funds, etc.) is distributed. This may not align with the deceased person's wishes and can lead to property disputes among heirs. While there's no prescribed format (except in some states like Louisiana), a legally valid Will in India typically follows these guidelines as per the Indian Succession Act :

  • bulitPoint
    The Will must be written and signed by the testator in the presence of two or more witnesses who are of legal age (usually 18) and not beneficiaries in the Will. The witnesses must then sign and certify that they saw the testator sign willingly.
  • bulitPoint
    The Will should list the assets (immovable property, personal property, etc.) and designate beneficiaries for each. It can also name an executor to manage the distribution of the estate and a guardian for minor children.
  • bulitPoint
    There are different types of Wills, each with its formalities (e.g., holographic wills handwritten and signed by the testator, living trusts created during the testator's lifetime). Consulting a lawyer ensures your Will meets all legal requirements.

How to write a will in accordance with the Indian Succession Act, of 1925?  

While a Will doesn't require a specific format, including certain legal details is crucial for its validity. Here's how to ensure wishes concerning the disposal of property and assets are properly documented:

  • bulitPoint

    Title and Introduction :-

    Begin with a clear title, such as "Last will of [Your Full Legal Name]." Declare that the one making the will is of sound mind and body when creating this Will.

  • bulitPoint

    Inventory of Assets :-

    List the testator's possessions, including real estate, bank accounts, investments, and valuables.

  • bulitPoint

    Designating Beneficiaries :-

    Clearly state who will inherit the assets. This can be individuals, charities, or even a combination. Please specify the exact portion each beneficiary will receive, or the percentage of the estate they are entitled to.

  • bulitPoint

    Executor and Guardian :-

    Appoint a trusted individual, the executor, to manage the distribution of the assets according to the Will's instructions. If the testator has minor children, designate a guardian to care for them after death.

  • bulitPoint

    Signing and Witnessing :-

    Signature on each page of the will in the presence of two witnesses who are at least 18 years old and not beneficiaries in the Will. The witnesses must then sign and affirm that they saw the testator signing the Will willingly.

  • bulitPoint

    Final Touches :-

    Include the date and location of the signing along with the complete names and addresses of witnesses.

What is Codicil to Will?  

It is a legal document that allows for modifications to an existing Will. It functions as an amendment, letting someone change specific parts of their Will without creating a completely new one. This proves useful in various scenarios:

  • bulitPoint
    Perhaps a new property was acquired or a grandchild was born. It allows for these updates to ensure the Will reflects current wishes.
  • bulitPoint
    Changes in relationships or a desire to alter the distribution of assets can be addressed through a Codicil. One can modify beneficiaries or the allocation percentages they receive.
  • bulitPoint
    If a section of the Will seems unclear, a Codicil can provide further explanation to avoid potential disputes after the testator's passing.

It is important to remember that Codicils have specific legal requirements. Typically, they need to be signed by the testator and witnessed by the same number of people required for the original Will. While Codicils are suitable for minor changes, for substantial revisions, consulting a lawyer to create a new Will might be more appropriate.
