Father's death without a will


My father died of an unnatural death in 2009. Till now we knew that he had left no will. I just came upon a document that he prepared sometime in 2005. He wrote on a stamp paper in his own handwriting that all his property belongs to me and my mother equally. Then he put his signature on a revenue stamp . But there were no witnesses. I want to know if this can be treated as his will.

Succession as per personal law applicable can set in.

The grandmother may decide to leave her estate for you.

It may come back to you by her sweet will.

Document written by your father can not be treated as will.your father's property will be divided as per succession law.

Also: It is mandatory to probate the WILL within the limits of the original civil jurisdiction of the High Courts of Madras and Mumbai and West Bengal.

It can not be intertpretated as Will. but you and your mother may suit for Title and Declaration as your father died intestate leaving behind you both as Legal Heir.

 

Note: If any other legal Heir alive, they also have the same right.
