Will Probate
Overview

Probate is the legal procedure through which genuineness of a will is validated by the court. A probate is only granted to an Executor appointed by the Will. However, in absence of the Executor, the beneficiaries under the Will can also seek probate. MyAdvo will help you draft and file application for probate through an expert lawyer.

Steps Involved in Will Probate
Documents and Questionnaire
Once you finalize the service, a checklist of documents/questionnaire will be provided to record your details.
Drafting of application
Based on the above information, the lawyer will draft and share the application for probate for your review and approval.
Sending of application
Post approval, the lawyer will send the application to you. You will have to send signed copy of the complaint to the lawyer along with the required documents.
Filing of application
Upon receipt of the signed copy, the lawyer shall file the application for probate in Court.
Issuance of notice and publication
The court will issue notice to the next of kin of the deceased to file their objections, if any, to the grant of probate. The Court will also publish a letter at prominent places to invite objections from public.
Objections
In case any objections are raised, the proceedings will be converted into a regular suit and parties will submit written objections, make their arguments and submit evidence.

  • Proof of death of the testator

Property Due Diligence to Minimize Risks

Before investing in a property, it is highly recommended to get a due-diligence conducted of the property to minimize risks. MyAdvo can assist in conducting due diligence of the property through expert diligence professionals.

 

Types of Due Diligence

Depending upon the nature of the transaction and the property involved, due diligence can be either:

1.    Full Search (tenure of search is usually between past 30 years to 99 years)

  • Recommended for sale, resale, long term lease transactions and transactions that involve obtaining financial loans against the property.

2.    Limited Search (tenure of search is restricted to past 15 years)

  • Recommended for short term rental/lease transactions.

The diligence for both the methods involves a rigorous search of all components of a real estate property and carried out comprehensively. The only difference being the tenure for which the search is done.
