Succession Lawyer in Execution of Wills
Transfer of immovable properties through Will is very a common scenario where lay people need assistance. In common view, Will or Testament is a document declaring or containing the intention of the owner of the property as to how and to whom his property is to be disposed of after his/her death. Thus the will only takes effect on the death of the person making it. Also, it can be revoked by the maker, before his death as many times as he wants.
We all know that every person with a sound mind and not being a minor can execute Will subject to compatibility of some conditions and provisions of the applicable laws in Bangladesh. However, what is to be carefully considered is that, apart from some exceptions, there is a percentage as to which a person can execute a Will. According to both Hanafi Law and Shia Law, a Muslim cannot dispose of more than 1/3 of the net assets after allowing for the debts and funeral expenses of the testator. The remaining 2/3 share should be distributed amongst the legal heirs of him. Moreover, he has to obtain the consent of the other heirs for bequeathing that 1/3rd share to the Legatee and if it is not done, the bequest will be invalid. However, a Muslim having no heir can bequeath his entire property if he wants to.
Also, the Will can be affective only through a probate case which is the copy of it certified under the seal of the Court of competent jurisdiction with a grant of administration to the estate of the testator, the person creating the Will.
General people in Bangladesh find the concept of Will and its execution complex for which they fall into different kinds of problems that lead to hassle and involvement to the Court causing loss of both time and money.
