The onerous lies on you.You haven't stated whether the property is hereditary ad legal heirs. Any way consult a lawyer if you have reservations in the enjoyment by younger brother as per will.

A joint Will is a Will made by two or more testators in a single document. It is executed by each testator. It can dispose of either their separate or joint property.

It is in effect two Wills and it works in the manner what it states or what is construed from its description. It operates on the death of each testator as his Will disposing of his own separate or joint property as the case may be.

However, on the death of the one testator the surviving party cannot alter the Will even if he wants. It can be altered only when two of the testators are alive and only jointly.

A Joint Will can be made in the form of a Mutual Will also. In such a case after one party dies his property will be left to the surviving party and after the surviving party dies, the entire property will be left to the persons to whom the testators bequeath it.
