How many wills?

Can I make seperate Wills for separate properties located in different cities?

respected sir,

If there are two properties situated then they should be mentioned in a single will only. If two wills are made, then in that case the second shall be operative by law and the first will be ineffective and shall be dealt with by the succession law. So it is recommended that all the properties should be covered by a single will only.

1. A Person can make any number of WILLs.    However, "ONLY" the absolute last will shall remain legally enforceable and all other earlier WILLs shall become null & void.

In any Will the person making it confirms and certifies that it's the latest and last Will. Hence, writing two wills, although relating to different properties is likely to create confusion besides giving rise to possible litigation rendering certain property being left out in the category of in-testate.

 

Therefore , you can make Will mentioning full details of all the  properties in the Schedule, and you can Will each property to whomsoever you want giving a clear reference  in  as per the schedule.

In a specific will, different schedules can be made property wise and individuals can be mentioned. ( Ex:  The Schedule No.1 property should go to Mr.A.  The schedule No.2 property should go to B etc.,)

Dear sir,
writing two seperate wills is not advisable as the last will is what is usually considered as valid in court. It eill create unnecessary confusion and give chance for litigation
