Will jurisdiction

Hi Learned members,

I purchased a flat in Hyderabad and left for rent. I stay at Chennai. I want to register a will for this property. When I checked where should I register, I get 2 version.

1. The place where the property is located.

2. The residing place of the will giver.

Which one of the above is correct? If I register a will at Chennai, how will the register office at Hyderabad know that there is a will and should avoid any future transactions if something unfortunate happens to the giver.


Thank you

The Will even otherwise cannot prevent or stop any fraudulent transaction that may take place in respect of the bequeathed property.

The Will cannot create any encumbrance over the property neither it will reflect in the EC. 

The Will can be prepared and registered wherever the testator resides or wherever he wants it to be registered, there is no restriction for doing so
