Contentious Probate Solicitors

Are you worried about the validity of a Will? 

If you are concerned about an executor or are disappointed in the Contents of a Will and want to contest it, we can help. 

Our contentious probate solicitors regularly handle a wide range of inheritance dispute cases, from claims under the Inheritance Act to executor fraud, undue influence and negligently drafted or lost wills.

We provide a national service.

There are various reasons why you might believe a Will is invalid, including:

  • The testator lacked mental capacity at the time of signing the Will
  • The Will was made under duress
  • The Will was not properly witnessed
  • The Will has been misinterpreted
  • You believe there is a more recent version of the Will

Please bear in mind there is a six-month time limit for making an estate claim, so it is essential not to delay.

If you believe a Will is invalid, we will take the appropriate steps to help you compile the necessary evidence to support your claim. Getting sufficient evidence is absolutely vital and we can guide you as to what you need to create a strong case.

We can also assist with Executor disputes, professional negligence (Will drafting & Administration errors) and inheritance dispute resolution.
