One of my friends father has died. He has made a WILL directing to sell his residential property( which is vacant) and distribute the proceeds in certain manners among sons and daughters. He has made a separate provision for his wife. The property is in joint name with his wife. My friend’s mother is willing to honour the will. Now how to implement the will? Should they apply for a probate or succession certificate? If a person has made a will is it compulsory to produce it in a court?
Ashok-Even though it is not mandatory to go for court to get the probate, but I insist to go court. This will resolve all future issues. At current there may be mutual consent on the WILL. However, we don’t know about future. Hence, it is always better to go to for court to get the probate and execute it accordingly.
