It is a sad fact of life that disputes following the death of a loved one are increasing. This is partly because of the framework of modern families in which parties may prefer not to marry or are involved in same sex relationships or may have step children.
Disputes can arise because the deceased did not make a Will or did make a Will but did not provide for someone they ought to have. There are also many situations where the validity of a will might be challenged, for instance where the testator lacked mental capacity, was subjected to the undue influence of others or the will was forged or wasn't signed and witnessed properly.
Disputes can also arise if Executors, Administrators or Trustees of an estate do not handle the distribution of the estate efficiently.
Any individuals who feel aggrieved by not being included in the Will, believe that a will is invalid or that the estate is not being administered efficiently should take advice immediately.
There are time limits which must be adhered to for claims and certain categories of individual who are able to make a claim. It is vital to seek advice at a very early stage if a claim is to be successful.
