We regularly deal with clients who have an actual or potential interest in assets held in the name of the deceased relative in India. These assets may be in the form of Bank Savings, Fixed Deposit Certificates (FD’s), agricultural land, residential property or commercial buildings.
Indian laws and procedures regarding inheritance are very different and quite complicated. Where necessary we can obtain advice from our experts, to enable you to make informed decisions.
We can guide you on the correct formalities and requirements which must be followed to ensure that the assets are properly transferred to the beneficiaries.
We can also deal with cases where a beneficiary may wish to forego or ‘disclaim’ an interest in the estate of the deceased. We have experience of disputed wills as well as contested inheritance claims in relation to assets both in the UK and in India. In such cases we are able to utilise our expert resources in the UK and in India to promote our client’s interest.
