Top Tips for Dealing with Disputed Wills

16 Jan 2017

Contesting a Will has never been so in demand. The reasons behind this are plentiful, with more complicated family structures unquestionably at the heart of many such cases.

Whilst each individual case has its own characteristics, the money at stake can be life changing, especially when it comes to disputed wills in London where many people have seen property prices increase beyond all imagination, as the capital and the South East have become one of the most sought after areas in the world to purchase property.

Such legal battles are unquestionably demanding on all the parties involved. Emotions run very high and the damage to lifelong bonds are at stake, so before anyone gets involved in such action, we ask that you really take time to seek counsel with those whose opinions you trust and respect before embarking on such action.

There are many reasons to dispute a Will, which a rudimentary search of the web will soon show. However, whilst the information available on the internet is a starting point, we believe it makes sense to seek information from a legal expert – especially if it’s free advice.

As with self-diagnosis of a medical condition, such analysis with a legal matter can often be inaccurate, especially when perhaps the mind is stressed and ill at ease.
