There is still a large proportion of the population that have not planned for the future by making a Will.

It’s hard enough losing a loved one unexpectedly, without having the additional worry and concern that you will not receive any assistance from the estate.

Alternatively, you may feel that the deceased was pressured into making a Will that would not otherwise have been made, or that due to a medical condition, the deceased did not appreciate what he or she was doing when the Will was made. In those circumstances, you may be able to bring a claim, or you may have to resist a claim if you are the executor or administrator.

We can advise you on:

  • Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
  • Claims for implied, constructive or resulting trusts
  • Challenges to the Will on the basis that the deceased lacked the necessary mental capacity to make a Will
  • Challenges based on undue influence
  • Challenges to the exercise of the discretion of pension trustees

  • Please contact Mark Hirst or Susanne Furness to discuss any concerns that you have over a potential claim.
