Probate and Inheritance Act Claims

We advise in all types of disputes relating to wills, estates and trusts.

We have many years experience acting for all parties – whether you are an individual beneficiary, a trustee, an executor or an administrator – whether you are a claimant or defendant.

We can advise on a wide range of claims including those relating to:

  • Validity of Wills
  • Lack of testamentary capacity.
  • Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975 if a child, spouse or dependant of the deceased has been left out of a Will; not properly provided for in the Will, or is not going to be adequately provided for under the Intestacy Rules if there was no Will.
  • Personal liabilities of Executors and Trustees if they have not acted properly or are accused of not acting properly.

For more information please read our fact sheet Grounds to challenge a Will, for information on how much it would cost to challenge a Will click here
