At Glaisyers we know that there can be problems with someone’s will after they die. If you are worried that there is a problem with the will, or if someone has been left out, our Probate experts will listen to you and help you work out the best way to deal with the person’s estate.
There are different reasons why the will might not be valid, these can include:
- Execution problems – if it hasn’t been signed correctly
- Doubts about the person’s ability to understand the will – testamentary capacity
- Concerns about Force, fraud or undue influence when the will was made
If the Will isn’t valid the person’s assets might need to be dealt with under a previous Will or according to the intestacy laws.
If you are dealing with the person’s Will and someone claims it isn’t valid you might still need to make sure inheritance tax is paid or that the house doesn’t fall into disrepair before the problems are resolved. Our specialist Probate solicitors will help you with the practicalities so that unnecessary problems don’t arise.
You might believe that you should be included in the will or that it isn’t valid. We will get to know you and your concerns to help you to make your claim so that the estate isn’t given to other people until the dispute has been resolved.
Sometimes these problems can’t be solved by the people involved and the Court might have to resolve it for you. Our Probate and Dispute Resolution specialists will guide you through every step of the process.
