both are registered wills and now my father is expired. can we use both first and second wills for claiming and changing rights over the said properties. there is no dispute over these properties. please advice
If you have a copy of the registered will with registration seal etc. you can go to concerned registration office apply giving number, date etc. There will be an application fee.
If you do not have a registered copy or registration receipt, but you know approximate date and the office of registration you can apply. There would be a search fee. Even in genuine and straightforward cases you may have to make payments under the table.
As registration of wills are not mandatory it may be sufficient if you have the original signed will with witnesses and the witnesses are available to depose you can use the will straightaway.
In some places in India a probate is mandatory. In order to obtain a probate one will have to apply surrendering the original will. The court will give you registered copies of the will. That is the authority of ownership by the heirs. You engage a property lawyer.
