Contentious Probate - Reynolds Parry Jones LLP

Contentious Probate

There are unfortunately occasions following a person’s death when a dispute arises in relation to the administration of the estate. Indeed, as family arrangements have become more complicated in recent years, the number of contentious probate cases has increased in the UK.

Allegations that a will has been forged or that the deceased was subject to “undue influence” are some of the more common reasons that a document may be contested.

Disputes can also arise if there are suspicions that the deceased lacked the mental capacity to set their affairs in order or if a party feels that adequate provision for them was not made in the will.

At Reynolds Parry Jones Solicitors we recognise that disputes following a person’s death can be highly stressful and very upsetting, which is why we strive to provide clear and compassionate advice to those affected. Our Private Client team can offer guidance on the options available and will work to avoid formal court proceedings wherever possible.

We can advise on:

  • The grounds for challenging a will
  • Testamentary capacity
  • Lack of valid execution
  • Failure to make financial provision
  • Undue influence
  • Fraudulent and forged wills
