Not sure that this is the service for you? Take a look at some of our frequently asked questions for more information.
A will is a legal document that expresses what happens to an individuals finances, property and assets after their death.
A will may also include other decisions around important responsibilities, such as childcare.
Failing to prepare a will can mean that officials then need to decide what happens to the deceased's finances, property, assets, children, etc.
A home made will can be valid. However, if you think a will is invalid for any reason, you should seek advice.
Wills can be challenged as invalid on a variety of grounds, including lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, improper execution, and fraud.
If you wish to bring a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, you must file your claim with the court within six months (minus one day) of the grant of probate being issued.
We can help if our client feels that inadequate financial provision has been made, or if they wish to challenge the statutory provisions that apply when no valid will exists. If a will is wrong, or an estate isn’t administered in the right way, we can sue for professional negligence.
A testator is a name/term for someone who has created a will.
