Contested Probate Matters

Disputes that arise over the content of wills or a family Estate can be extremely stressful. Our team can help to resolve the problems and provide advice in relation to many contested probate matters.”

The first step to resolving your dispute is to establish the legal position regarding your situation. Glanvilles have a team of solicitors who are fully experienced in contentious probate matters and are able to assist clients in resolving probate disputes of all kinds.

In terms of contested probate, we can provide legal assistance with:-

  • Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
  • Rectification of wills (cases against the way a solicitor has prepared a will)
  • Substitution or removal of personal representatives (executors or administrators)
  • Cases involving the Presumption of Death Act
  • Claims for Lack of Capacity and Undue Influence in relation to the Testator
  • Claims for Fraud in relation to a Will
  • Disputes relating to the value of an Estate’s assets
  • Disputes over the interpretation of a Will

As in most of our litigation work, we recognise that the litigation process can be costly and stressful so we will always consider alternative means of settling disputes. We have considerable experience in mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which can often be considerably more cost effective in terms of reaching a resolution.

We also deal with claims by dependents that have not been included in the will and want to make a claim against the estate and problems arising from intestacy.
