Is a will valid with just a thumb print?
« on: March 12, 2017, 02:44:50 PM »
Hi - I am trying to understand if a will is valid with just a thumb of the person who has made the will.

My father recently passed and I was informed by his sister that there is a will which she has shared a copy of that leaves our ancestral home in her name only. The will states that my father was not able to sign the will as his hand was shaking therefore there are thumb prints on it. It has been notarized by a lawyer. The will was created in Feb 2016 in Gujarat.

My father has been in poor health since 2014/2015.

Also, my father who is a British citizen was in India without a valid visa due to his poor health he was not able to travel back to the uk and stayed in India. Would this make the Will (if legal) invalid?

Any help would be greatly recieved.

a WILL is registered not Notorised.

a will to be valid has to have two witnesses who are of sound mind and has no interest in the content of the WILL.

you should immediately file for mutation of property belonging to your dad
