  • ansFor probate of will you have to pay court fees and not stamp duty. In Maharashtra maximum court fees is Rs 75000 for probate. You will have to check court fees act for delhi as regards court fees payable on probate. In addition you need to pay legal fees. Generally for probate wherein will is not contested it would take maximum of 6 months and Probate of will is not mandatory in Delhi. In your case sisters can execute a Deed of Relinquishment in your favor. You may have it duly stamped and registered.
