Family members, friends and beneficiaries are all entitled to contest a Will if they reasonably believe they have not received the assets they were due.
We also act on behalf of beneficiaries who wish to protect their inheritance against somebody who is contesting a Will.
We also represent charities that are defending a donation that was left in a supporter’s Will.
Fast action is crucial if you wish to contest a Will, as claims under the Inheritance Act should be made within six months of probate. There are exceptions to this rule, so consult one of our experts to find out if you may still be in a position to take action after six months has passed.
Our experienced solicitors will act for all types of claimants, from people who are defending an estate to those trying to safeguard assets they are due to receive from the deceased.
