Will/ Testamentary documents

POSTED BY Gaurav Garg ON March 15, 2013 9:14 am ONE COMMENT

Dear Manish,

Can a person have 2 separate WILLS, one for property in India and one for the UK?
Nevertheless,  the starting paragraph of will is “ I HEREBY REVOKE all former Wills and Testamentary dispositions at any time heretofore made by me and declare this to be my last Will- – – – – – -” Please clarify the same.

Does will and/ or testamentary documents supersede Indian/ Hindu Succession Act(s)?

As per my understanding Indian/ Hindu Succession Act(s) comes into picture ONLY when there is no testamentary/ will in existence. Please corroborate my understanding……..

Awaiting your response.

  1. Dear Gaurav, no there can not be 2 Wills simultaneously running for 2 different set of assets (here the word assets is used to sum up all your assets & investments & not limited to just real estate). If there is a wil, it ‘ll be the umbrella over all nominations as well as hindu succession acts & other things. If there is no will, Hindu succession act ‘ll come into picture & the partition of your assets ‘ll be done on the basis of Hindu Succession act.

    Thanks

    Ashal
