Property (will)

Hi All,

 

I need a quick advise. If a married person during his lifespan makes his will (property) in the name of some other person other than his wife and children. Then in that case what rights a wife can claim in the property.

Please advise ASAP its urgent.

To answer U quickly,U have not mentioned the status of the property,whether self acquired or ancestral?

If it is self earned, he can will the property as he pleases.

self-acquired property can be bequeathed by a WILL to any person of his choice.  Wife or children have no right to claim that property if he has written a will in favour of a third party.

K.S.Srinivas (Advisor (HR))     30 December 2015

A person can  be bequeathed his self acquired property by a WILL to any person of your choice.  Wilfe or children have no right to claim in case he has already written a will in favour of a third party.

Please take counsel of elders and well wishers to give something to wife & children and get it registered as irrevokable gift. Otherwise, I am sorry to say, You have NO othewr legal option

A self acquired property can be bequeathed by the owner to anyone of his choice, he need not take permission or consent from his wife or children for this.  The only criteria is that the testator should have marketable title to the property.
