Wills, Deeds & Documents

A will is made so that your surviving family members can avoid any problems or potential disputes between your heirs and loved ones. If you die without a will, your estate will go in to intestacy.

Having a will can:

  • protect your spouse and children, and
  • it can let you keep control of your matters and property and set out exactly how you would like things handled after you have passed on.

In India, a valid will must be signed by 2 individual witnesses and registered.

A will, being a legally enforceable document, needs to be handled with care and legal preparation is key in avoiding problems and creating certainty for  your loved ones in the future.

Case Study

We helped people who had purchased property in India obtain justice against some of the biggest developers. Not everything is ever clear as the developers know how to play the system and cause worry and stress whilst holding on to your hard earned cash. We countered every negative tactic possible and as each case is different, with our joint approach we worked out the best way to proceed. But, be aware, developers are very canny and need a robust approach. They do not give up lightly and go all the way.
