What is it?A will is a testamentary instrument through which an individual decides how his/her assets will be dealt with after his/her death. This is a crucial agreement, given that if a will is not created, the devolution of the deceased's assets will happen in accordance with the applicable succession law in India, which may not be in line with the deceased's wishes. When is it used?This document can be used to create a binding and enforceable will for the deceased, under which he/she decides how their property is to be dealt with in the event of their death. This document needs to be executed in front of witnesses for it to be considered valid. Which other agreements may be relevant to me ?If you are looking to transfer assets during your life rather than at the time of your death, consider using our 'Gift Deed (Immovable Property)' or 'Gift Deed (Flats & Apartments)' instead.
