Solicitors in Essex & London
When a person makes a Will or dies without one, certain persons related to them or maintained by them can challenge the Will or intestacy provisions and claim money from the Estate, even where there is a Will that expressly excludes them. Our experienced team of contested Wills and probate solicitors in Essex and London are able to assist in complex matters such as making claims under the Inheritance Act 1975.
Claims under the Inheritance Act 1975 can be made where reasonable financial provision has not been made for a claimant either by the deceased's Will or under the Intestacy rules.
Any application under the Inheritance Act 1975 must be made within 6 months of the Grant of Probate so legal advice should be sought immediately if you believe you may have a claim.
If you would like more legal advice on making a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975, please contact our Wills claim experts for a free initial consultation - call to make an appointment at one of our offices located across Essex and London.*
