Can a Will be written from overseas?1 min read . Updated: 16 Jan 2022, 01:12 PM IST
- The provisions of Indian Succession Act, 1925, will be applicable for testamentary succession of assets.
- We would recommend that you register your will, albeit it is optional to do so in India.
Me and my family (wife and son) are NRIs based in Sweden. I have properties and movable assets in India. Can I write a Will on plain paper while I am in Sweden with respect to my assets? Is it okay to get it witnessed by my other NRI friends from India, based in Sweden, for the time being? What are other precautions to be taken when writing a Will from overseas with respect to assets and liabilities in India?
