Wills and Inheritance Disputes

Our wills and inheritance disputes lawyers are specialists in dealing with probate and inheritance claims. Unfortunately inheritance disputes can arise after someone has died. Usually any challenge should be made within 6 months of probate having been granted so it is important to get advice from a will disputes solicitor as soon as possible.

Generally, an individual can leave their estate to whoever they wish, however it is sometimes possible for there to be a challenge to a will if someone feels they have been treated unfairly.

  • Are you concerned about the validity of a will?
  • Were you dependent on someone or relied on them for support such as accommodation or care, and feel you have not been fairly provided for?
  • Were you made a promise that is not provided for in the will?
  • Are you the executor of an estate and being challenged about how you are administering it? 

If you instruct us, a named will disputes lawyer from our civil litigation team in Exeter will support your case from start to finish and keep you informed throughout the process. We will start by meeting with you to discuss your case, your options and possible outcomes. We will need to see all the paperwork, so it is important that you keep hold of any relevant documents and correspondence.
