Losing a family member or loved one can be a challenging time for those left behind, and disagreements around the validity of the deceased’s Will and assets can make it even more difficult.
‘Contentious probate’ means any dispute or disagreement regarding a deceased person’s Will and the way in which their estate should be handled. Such disputes can arise because of:
- The validity of the deceased’s Will e.g. if the deceased was influenced by another or did not have capacity
- Claims under the Inheritance Act
- The way in which the estate is distributed
- Administration costs
- Executor and/or trustee authority
If you feel that you have been unfairly left out of a Will, Mincoffs Solicitors’ expert team can advise on the legalities of contentious probate and the process of contesting a Will or any other related dispute.
