Contesting a Will

Are you looking to contest a will or are you defending a claim from someone looking to contest a will? Whatever the problem, our solicitors can help.

It may be possible to contest or challenge a will on one or more of the following grounds:

  • the will was not signed or executed properly;
  • the person who made the will lacked the capacity to do so;
  • the person who made the will was pressured into or coerced by another person to make the will in the terms that they did;
  • the person who made the will did not know and approve the contents of their will;
  • the will is forged.

If you have been left out of a will, or the provision left for you in a will is insufficient to meet your needs, you may be eligible to bring a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

Our wills, probate and trusts team is here to help.

Please call us to find out how we can help. We can talk on the phone or  arrange a meeting where we can discuss your options and give you a clear idea of timeframes and costs.

Alternatively, please contact us online and we’ll call you back when it’s convenient for you.
