Disputed Wills & Probate

With people living longer and an increase in second marriages later in life, disputed Wills are unfortunately becoming more common. Where a dispute does arise our disputed Wills solicitors can help.

Where a dispute occurs, or where you suspect there is a problem with a Will, it’s important to seek specialist legal advice.

How we can help you

At Linder Myers, we provide specialised legal support with regards to all aspects of disputed Wills, including in the following areas:

  • Inheritance Act claims. Including where the deceased failed to make a Will, or where they did not leave you anything in their Will and you relied on them financially. With a six month time limit for bringing action under the Inheritance Act , if you have a claim it’s important to act quickly to resolve any disputes.
  • Beneficiary actions. Including where you are a beneficiary but are being challenged over your inheritance, or where you believe that the trustees or executors (those responsible for dealing with the affairs of someone who has died in accordance with the terms of the Will) are acting negligently.
  • Support for trustees and executors. Including where a claim has been made against the estate or you as an individual.
  • Services for charities.

At Linder Myers, our Disputed Wills & Probate department provides our clients with the most practical, efficient and cost-effective solutions.

A highly complex area of law that requires skill and sensitivity, we always encourage our clients to resolve any issues as amicably as possible and try to minimise the strain on family relations.

Where negotiation or mediation (whether informal or formal) is not suitable, however litigation may be required. In these situations, we have the litigation skills required to ensure the best possible outcome for you.
