Our Will Disputes solicitors may be able to help you claim if you expected to inherit something from a loved one but it isn’t in their Will.
People often agree to leave specific assets or possessions to their friends and family in their Will. Unfortunately, these pre-death agreements are sometimes missing from the deceased’s final Will because of mistakes made by their solicitor or Will writer. Mistakes like this can be particularly severe for high net worth individuals with valuable and unique assets.
In 2005, the House of Lords ruled that Will writers owe a duty of care not only to the person making the Will, but also to anyone who was intended to inherit. This means that you can claim against the Will writer if you have missed out on expected inheritance due to negligence on their part.
Making a professional negligence claim might not secure you the exact inheritance that you expected, but our solicitors will work closely with you to achieve the best possible outcome for your individual situation.
Our highly experienced team takes a bespoke approach to every client, with support and representation tailored for your unique needs. We’ll discuss the case with you in-depth, help you decide on the best course of action, and keep you informed with progress throughout your claim.
