Sir, what is legal procedure and requirements for making a will?
Asked 3 years ago in Civil Law from Karnal, Haryana
Hello,

Thank you for posting your query.

The following are the requirements for making a will:-

1. Person making the will must be sane and in his senses. He/She must not be under any coercion, undue influence etc.
2. Two witnesses are required to sign the will stating that the same was made in their presence.
3, The document should be registered. (not compulsory)
4. Document must be signed and dated.


Apart from the above basic requirements, there are a number of other things which are to be kept in mind. I can be of help in preparing a draft will if need be. You may contact me at nishantbora@gmail.com

Do let me know in case you need any further assistance.

Apart from what Mr. Bora has advised, a third witness may be added, that of a doctor who will certify on the will itself that the person is sane and in senses.

A will does not require registration. Executor is normally appointed in the will itself.
