It is a regrettable fact that often these days there are cases when a spouse, partner, child or loved one has failed to keep what was understood to be a promise, or simply make proper provision for another. There are a number of ways in which a claim can be made against an estate if proper provision has not been made. You should contact us to discuss this without delay, as there are often short and rigid time limits which must complied with.
We are also able to advise in respect of circumstances where it is believed that the Will has been made in dubious circumstances were the deceased may not have been capable of giving instructions for a Will. Again you should contact us immediately.
There are other circumstances where an Executor or Administrator may not be acting in a way in which a beneficiary considers to be correct or proper and there are procedures that can be used to ensure that the administration of the estate is undertaken properly for the benefit (as always should be the case) of all beneficiaries. If you have any concerns regarding an estate please contact us immediately.
