Disputes concerning probate and administration of estates are becoming increasingly common, and often an application to delay or prevent administration of estates is required. As most of these cases involve complex family issues, they can be often difficult to resolve and can become expensive. Our contested probate solicitors are able to offer clear and concise advice if you are seeking to challenge a Will or Intestacy.
A caveat is a procedure to prevent probate issuing an estate and this is applied for online or in writing or in person at a probate registry.
Whilst a caveat is in place the estate cannot be administered. Caveats last for 6 months.
Without a caveat in place, the Executors or Administrators can collect in all of the assets of the Estate and distribute the assets.
The Executors/Administrators can challenge the caveat and there are strict time limits in place regarding responding to a challenge and serious consequences of failing to do so.
With the above in mind, it is important for legal advice to be sought immediately if you wish to challenge a Will or Intestacy; our contested probate solicitors in Essex and London have a wealth of experience when it comes to applications to delay or prevent the administration of estates and are here to help.
