How To Register A Will In 5 Easy Steps?

Though registration of Will is an optional legal formality, your Will can be contested even after that but it has certain advantages. Registration acts as a precautionary measure towards the reliability and trustworthiness of a Will. A Will can be registered in these 5 easy steps:

  1. Firstly, the testator will have to visit the Sub-Registrar’s office in the area where he/she resides. The personal appearance of the testator in front of a government official augments the reliability of the Will.
  2. Because the Will is of delicate nature and there are always some privacy/security reasons, it is not required to be registered instantly, it can be done anytime. Hence there is no limitation period, there is no fixed time.
  3. Then the Registrar will carefully examine the document and ensures that there are no legal errors in the Will and has all the necessary essentials fulfilled before registering it.
  4. After the scrutiny, a date is fixed at the Sub-Registrar’s office for registration. A nominal registration fees is paid which is different in every state as the State government decides such fees.
  5. The testator shall make sure that he go along with minimum two attesting witnesses to the office of Sub-Registrar. After this whole process, the registered copy of the Will can be collected after 1 week.
