Contested Wills and Estates
It is becoming increasingly common for Wills and estates to be contested.
This is due to a number of factors including; technical problems with wills (e.g. not drawn up properly or not properly witnessed), more complicated families arising from people marrying two or more times, or people cohabiting. Also, with estates being often relatively larger than in the years before the recent booms in house prices, the incentive to challenge the will is often greater for those who think they may have been dispossessed of their inheritance.
In addition, the Inheritance (Provision for Families and Dependants) Act 1975 can make it feasible for relatives and dependents to bring an action in court even if a valid will exists or, where the estate is being administered under the intestacy rules.
Our legal team is experienced in helping clients in these matters. Whether you are an executor, beneficiary, or someone who wants to contest the validity of a will or bring a case under the 1975 Act we can help.
