Wills, Probate & Succession
"Will” indicates the lawful announcement of the objective of testator (Will maker) with regard to his assets which he preferred to be taken after the impact of his loss of life.
Will takes its effect only after the death of the Testator and the assets the mentioned therein are distributed as per the terms and conditions of the Will. Will needs to be probated in some of the states whereas in other states Will is not compulsorily remittable.
To claim right over a deceased person’s property who has died without making a Will, the claimant need to procure a succession certificate from the competent court. Succession certificate is proof that the persons mentioned in the succession certificate are the only legal heirs to succeed to the property of a person who has died intestate(without making a Will).
