Can I contest a will?

In England and Wales individuals are generally free to leave their property and belongings to anyone they choose.  Sometimes, however, a Will comes as a surprise, or there is something odd about it: family members who expected to inherit are cut out of a Will, ‘strangers’ receive large gifts, the signature looks wrong or a new Will appears that was made when the person was very unwell.

 

If you are worried about a situation like this, our interactive Will dispute service will help you to decide whether you might have grounds to contest the Will and explains when the validity of a Will can be challenged.
