Disputed Wills and Estates

    After someone dies, dealing with the estate is time consuming even when everything goes to plan. It’s much worse, however, when something goes wrong.

    Our team can help with 3 types of dispute:

    • Where the Will might not be valid – this can arise, for example, when it wasn’t properly signed or witnessed, or where it is not clear whether the deceased was of sound mind when the Will was made;
    • Where the Will was poorly drafted and doesn’t make the provision the deceased wanted – if drafted by a solicitor or “will writer”, we can help with a claim for professional negligence;
    • Where the Will (or the intestacy) does not make adequate provision for a spouse, civil partner or other dependants. The Courts can make reasonable provision for people who were left out of the Will or didn’t receive enough under the Will or intestacy in certain circumstances, under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

    If you think there may be a dispute about the validity of the Will, or you were expecting to receive more on the death of a loved one, please call us
