Dear client, the wife would be eligible to make will of the property with has been transfered in her name or belongs to her. There can be no joint will. Since the shares are separate hence te will cannot be made jointly. It is better to have a detailed discussion of your case and provide legal opinion accordingly. Feel free to contacton nine nine five eight zero five nine five one six. Thanks & Regards.

There is no restriction in making a joint will as long as it is registered and is signed by witnesses. A basic principle of property law is that one cannot transfer the tilte of a property till he/she owns it in the first place. This means that one can transfer a property via a will which he/she owns only. Therefore in this situation, if a property is owned the wife only, the husband name in the will not be helfpful can may be employed in the future to challenge the will.
