Disputed Wills, Estates, Probate and Inheritance Claims

Probate and Inheritance ClaimsLosing a loved one is devastating enough, but finding out that you have not been provided for under the terms of their Will, or that someone is challenging the Will – particularly if it involves a close family friend or family member - can compound the loss making it harder to come to terms with. At Hewetts, we will clearly and sympathetically guide you through the legal processes, offering support and assistance at this difficult time. We aim to minimise conflict as far as possible whilst working with you to achieve a satisfactory outcome.  We operate a national service.

We can help with:-

  • Concerns over the mental capacity of the person making the Will
  • Concerns over someone asserting undue influence on the testator
  • Challenges to the validity of a Will for example through invalid procedure or fraud
  • Disputes involving executors, trustees or powers of attorney
  • Disputes between beneficiaries over the division of assets
  • Claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
  • Professional negligence claims against trustees or professional advisers
  • Court of Protection work including in relation to Statutory Wills
  • Applications to remove or substitute executors or trustees
  • Trust litigation in respect of property including proprietary estoppel claims
  • Asset tracing and recovery
