quesCan late brother's wife Will late brother's property to someone else?

Can a female Hindu in Delhi who is issueless and has inherited business and properties of her late husband in delhi make an unregistered will in favour of her brother and another unregistered will in favour of her sister by which she has given whole inherited business to her brother and inherited movable properties to her sister?


On demise of female when these 2 unregistered wills exist, can the brother of the late husband claim right in business and immovable properties ?

  • ansIf the properties and / or business were self acquired properties of the husband of the female hindu in question, then yes, she can definately bequeth the same according to her wishes.


    Further, even if the properties were not the self acquired properties of the husband and were ancestral, then it seems the properties were already partitioned and his brother would have got a share in it.


    However, it is better to execute a single will rather than two diffrent wills, even though you may or may not get the same registered. The will which is duly registered is obviously on a better footing than the unregistered will.
