Hello Experts,

There are 5 items in a hand written wittnessed WILL made in 2016.

In 2017 1 item got disposed.

Question: Does the WILL is valid for other 4 items?

Many Thanks.

please give details about items and it got disposed.

As such it is valid but it is better that a fresh WILL is to be executed in order to avoid complicity.

Was the testator alive after signing the WILL in 2016?

Did testator himself/herself dispose 1 item out of 5 in 2017?

Srinivas (Partner)     17 August 2017

Yes testator is still alive and disposed  5 (property) by himself/herself. 

Question: Is the 2016 WILL still valid for other 4 properties?

Question : Hand written WILL can be registered. I mean the same paper?

The testator can apear before registering authortiy and can register the WILL...

Hi, as suggested above, I think it would be prudent if a new will of the remaining items in question is drafted, and freshly attested and notarized in order to avoid future complications.

Handwritten WILL can fetch better reliance as far as authenticity is concerned.

Registered WILL is not easily set aside atleast on the counts of authenticity.....................after all testator and witnesses appear in person before registering authority.............

The WILL may operate on residual estate/property narrated in WILL.

Registering a new WILL, duly narrating previous WILL being cancelled, and current WILL being latest/last as on date, is certainly the best option...............
