Inheritance Disputes
When someone dies this has a huge impact on the family and friends of the deceased.  If there are disagreements about the Will and/or administration of the estate then this difficult time becomes worse and independent advice and support may be necessary to resolve the issues.

Our team of specialist solicitors can give advice where there are disputes between beneficiaries, executors or those who want to make a claim against an estate.  Some of the issues we can deal with are:-

  • Undue influence claims
  • A claim under the Inheritance (provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975
  • Differences over the interpretation of the Will of the deceased
  • Claims relating to lack of mental capacity
  • Disputes between beneficiaries, executors and/or trustees
