It can sometimes happen that when a loved one’s estate is being administered, there are disagreements between Executors or family members or beneficiaries to the Will about how this should happen. The most common disagreements are:
- The Executor is not dealing with the estate correctly or in accordance with the terms of the Will
- People who expected to be included in the Will have been left out of it or promises that were made to them by your loved one have not been included in the Will
- It is believed by certain people that your loved one who has died did not have mental capacity to make the Will or was put under undue pressure to make the Will
- It is believed by certain people the Will is not valid
- People have stated they intend to contest the Will and make a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 to change its’ terms
