If any person get any property by will, the will need to be probated from the competent court.

Without probate, the will is not effective and is not the document to show the ownership.

Furthermore, for precaution along with the probate you have to search the case record in the local probate court to find out whether any suit is pending in the matter of the probate of the will or any other suit is pending.

There are certain regions in the country where probate of a Will is not required. In such places the inherited property can be got mutated for the confirmation of ownership.
