We understand that the death of a loved one can be distressing. And, we know that the whole situation can become more upsetting if you or someone else believes the Will is wrong in some way. The Will or inheritance may end up being challenged or disputed in some way. But your solicitors will be able to help you with that.
If you would like help drafting a Will, we can also help with that.
Why Might Someone Challenge A Will?
Someone might challenge a Will for several reasons. While the situation may be distressing, it is important that actions as the deceased intended are accurately and lawfully carried out. If any of these apply to you, you may be able to make a claim and challenge a Will or inheritance:
- Contest a Will if, for example, you believe it may be fraudulent or invalid, or that the deceased was subject to too much influence
- If the deceased lacked the capacity to make a Will
- Dispute inheritance, for example if the inheritance does not accurately reflect the deceased’s wishes
- If the deceased was unfairly influenced by someone who persuaded them to make a Will that they wouldn’t have made if left to their own devices
There are other circumstances where someone might dispute a Will or inheritance. And, if you have any questions about whether you could make a claim, Chris Rudd Solicitors can help. Keep reading to learn more and find out how to get in touch.
