Wills & Probate Disputes

Wills & Probate Disputes

Disputes involving wills and probate by their very nature tend to arise at a highly emotional time.  At Coole Bevis LLP we understand this is sensitive, particularly if family relationships are involved, and aim to apply our expertise in this area of the law to help you achieve the best possible resolution, with the least possible trauma.

Changes in the structure of our society, including more extended families and an ageing population, are leading to more disputes over wills, estates and family trusts. This area of the law, sometimes known as contentious probate, is complex and significant expertise is required to resolve such disputes.  Problems can also occur when a family member dies intestate (without having made a will) or their will bequeaths the estate to someone who is not a family member, or perhaps to an organisation such as a charity.

At Coole Bevis LLP our experience includes disputes or claims regarding:

  • Validity of wills
  • Administration of an estate, including removal of executors/trustees
  • Construction & interpretation of wills
  • Claims for reasonable financial provision from an estate
  • Lifetime promises and gifts relating to property, money and other assets
  • Professional negligence claims against will writers/solicitors

 

In many instances, it is important to seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible because strict time limits may apply. Any delay may prevent you getting the funds or property to which you might be entitled.

Whatever the problem, we will take a sensitive and practical approach aimed at providing clear advice as to how best to protect your interests.
