What should I do to execute a will?

  • Introduction: Our platform focuses on the transmission of land from the deceased to his/her beneficiaries where the deceased left a will.
  • Risk/what happens if the process is not undertaken: The major risk in respect to the above process is that the court processes take so much time and money and hence delaying the process.
