When family members become embroiled in a legal dispute, particularly where inheritance or the wishes or a deceased loved one are concerned, there is a tendency for emotions to overspill and tempers to quickly rise. Contested Wills, trusts and inheritance disputes tend to get very expensive very quickly. Therefore, instructing a legal specialist as early on as possible is vital to protect your loved one’s estate and resolve the issue before it gets blown out of proportion.
Our contentious trusts and probate solicitors understand the many different factors that can lead to a dispute over a will or inheritance, such as:
The deceased may have promised different things to different people while they were alive, leading to surprises when the will comes to light
Family members may have conflicting ideas about what they ‘should’ be entitled to or how the will should be interpreted
There may be issues with the will itself, such as evidence of undue influence
The deceased may have died without leaving a will (called ‘dying intestate’)
There may be problems with the way the executors are handling the estate
