Will Drafting & Registration

What is a Will?

A will enables you to specify how your possessions will be dispersed among your loved ones following your death. This agreement guarantees that your possessions pass according to your preferences rather than the inheritance laws (which differ by major religion). Its formation is frequently postponed, but having one in place and updating it as needed is a smart practice. All that is required of such a document is a declaration that it is being created without any undue pressure, as well as the facts of your property and who will inherit it. It is not required to be registered, but it is recommended that you do so at the sub-office.
It need not be registered, but it is suggested that you do so at the office of the sub-registrar.

Advantages of a Will

Transition is made easier.

A will establishes the order in terms of how your possessions will be distributed following your death. This will considerably lessen your loved ones’ load at such a terrible moment.

 Freedom of choice.

If you die intestate (without a will), your possessions will be distributed according to inheritance rules, which may or may not be in accordance with your preferences. A will allows you to specify how you wish your assets to be distributed.

A will is to be registered with the registrar/sub-registrar with a nominal registration fee. The testator must be personally present at the registrar’s office along with witnesses.
