Will-Deed Drafting And Will Registration
How to Write a Will? Before knowing this, let us understand who can write a will. A person above 18 years of age is of sound mind and, has any property, can write a will. As long as a person is alive, he has full rights over his property, but after his death, according to the Will, his property gets to his heir. The Will can be changed any number of times after writing.
A Will is a legally valid document through which you transfer your property after your death to a concerned person as per your wish. If you are not a minor and are of sound mind, you can make a Will as per the Indian Succession Act 1925. The Will can be written either manually or with the help of a typewriter. If you have multiple legal heirs, there can be a dispute between them without a will.
Who Makes a Will?
Any person of sound mind and adult age can make a will. A will made under duress or coercion is not considered valid - only a will made by the free Will of the testator is considered valid. A person can make a Will at any time while he is alive, provided he is a major. Also, there is no restriction on age and the number of times a person can make a Will.
Why make a Will?
• If a person has any property, he has to make a will. The purpose of a will is to give the owner of the property the right to pass it on to someone after him. A Will facilitates the transfer of property by the testator in the name of another person. If the testator's children are minors, he can write the children's words in the Will.
• The division of property has often been a point of contention among the family members or relatives of the deceased person. Having a will can avoid such disputes. If the testator wishes, he can also give his property to charity.
How to write a will?
Although there is no fixed format of a Will, it should contain some legally essential things so that no one can oppose it later.
While writing the Will, keep this essential point in mind:
• First, clarify that you are not writing the Will under pressure from anyone but of your own free Will because if you do not do so, no Will is legally valid.
• Make a list of all your assets, including property, mutual funds, money in savings accounts, fixed deposits, etc. Double-check it so that no property is left out.
• Next, divide your property by telling who will inherit what. To remove any doubt, divide each asset in turn. If you give any property to a minor, state who will be its guardian. Choose someone you trust.
• After taking care of all the above, get the Will signed by two witnesses. His signature will be required to certify that you have signed the Will in his presence.
• Write the date and place of signing the Will and the complete addresses and names of your witnesses. However, witnesses are not required to read your Will.
• You and your witnesses must sign each page of the Will. If you want to make any changes to the Will, you and your witnesses must sign it again.
• Keep the Will in a safe place. If you make multiple copies of your Will, avoid keeping them in one place. Also, remember that you can write a Will in any language, and there is no need to use any technical terms. However, the language should be very clear, so there is no doubt about it.
• No stamp duty is payable on the Will. You can change or cancel your Will at any time. However, if you are a Christian or a Zoroastrian, your Will will automatically be revoked if you get married. This is not applicable to Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs, and Hindus.
What are the different parts of a will?
The Will Format consists of the following parts:
• Personal Information: Name of the testator, father's name, home address, date of birth, etc.
• Declaration of Date: It is essential to mention the date of preparation of the Will.
• Verification of Free Will: While making a Will, you can mention that you are making it out of free Will and not under the influence or pressure of any person.
• Executor details: The Will requires an executor who executes it. Therefore, you should mention the name, address, relationship with the executor, age, etc., of the executor.
• Property and Beneficiary Details: The essential section of the Will is the details of the immovable properties or properties along with their addresses. Then mention all the movable assets like insurance, bank deposits, mutual funds, etc. Remember to mention the name of each property's beneficiary.
• Signature: After mentioning all the above details, it is necessary to sign the Will.
• Witness Signatures: At least two witnesses must also sign your Will. Also, mention the father's name and address of your witnesses.
