Will cannot be used as evidence till a witness proves its execution
Whether the Will has duly been executed or not, the court must satisfy its conscience with regard to the totality of the circumstances
My father owned a house in Ghaziabad. It is in his name and he made a Will which is currently in the custody of my mother. I am concerned about potential disputes about the property’s ownership arising after my mother’s demise because the witnesses of the Will are my father’s friends who are also of my father’s age, that is, around 85 years. I feel that after their demise, the issue might become complicated. What would be the right course of action to ensure that until the Will becomes valid in the eyes of the law, there is no dispute whatsoever about the property among the legal heirs?
