At Josiah Hincks Solicitors we have professional team that specialises in contentious trust and probate work.
We understand that contesting a Will and probate disputes are considerably stressful for those involved. We are dedicated to alleviating any stress and to provide effective, expert and clear advice.
The term contentious probate is used for disputes that arise in relation to the distribution of a deceased person’s estate. This includes disputed Wills and Inheritance Act claims.
Common will disputes can arise when the Executor has acted unreasonably, or even for instance when the Deceased made clear promises of an inheritance and then only to then disinherit or cut someone close to them out of their Will.
Process of contesting a will
If you have been excluded from a Will, time is of the essence in making a claim and Will.Claims and Josiah Hincks Solicitors are here to help. It is important that you obtain a copy of the Will promptly. It may be the case the Executor may have acted unreasonably and refuse to provide a copy of the Will, if this is the case a way of pressuring the executor into providing a copy of the Will is to issue a Caveat.
A Caveat prevents a grant of probate being issued. This is extremely useful in ensuring the Will is provided, otherwise probate cannot be issued and the assets of the estate can be disposed of.
At Josiah Hincks Solicitors our areas of expertise include contesting a will, trust disputes, the removal of personal representatives and Inheritance Act claims.
