Will or Testament
Will

Will or testament is a legal document which explicitly provides the way in which a person who has died,  wanted that his property should be divided or distributed among his legal heirs, thereby making it a very important document when it comes to inheritance of property. 

Problems faced by NRIs:
  • Many times it has been seen that NRI who is living abroad, dies in an accident and his share in ancestral house or land is usurped by his brothers or their sons or possession of his property is illegally taken over by some strangers or goons . Hence, it is very important to keep a draft of Will ready in case you own any land or immovable property in India.
  • Similarly, many times it has been seen that after the death of NRI father, his children get stuck into lifelong litigation regarding inheritance of property which is situated in Punjab.
  • Many times, properties of NRIs are illegally taken over by strangers or relatives on the basis of forged will. It is very important to challenge such forged wills and file criminal cases of forgery under Indian Penal Code against such criminals.
  • Many times it happens that a deceased leaves a valid will but his children who have lived all their lives abroad and have rarely visited India do not know how to get the property transferred in their names and thereafter how to sell the land or immovable land on the basis of that will.
