Will and Inheritance disputes

Dealing with the estate of a recently deceased loved one is never easy. Legal issues can arise regardless of whether or not they had made a will.

If you believe that you have not been provided for sufficiently, there are ways to challenge how assets have been divided.  During this period emotions can run high and often the best way to resolve things is by seeking expert guidance.

At Howlett Clarke we have the expertise to help you resolve your issues with the minimum of stress. Issues can include:

  • A family member or dependent has been left out of a will or is not included as being a beneficiary in accordance with the intestacy rules
  • Concerns over mental capacity, undue influence or duress when making a will
  • Mistakes within a will
  • Whether a will has been properly drafted, signed and witnessed
  • Problems with the distribution of assets

If you have one of these, or any other issue please do not hesitate to contact of our team on 01273 838 756 who will be happy to assist.

      It is, of course, very common for couples to live together without being married and indeed for children to be born into such relationships. The importance of having a will cannot be underestimated.

      Mrs Jackson and her only child, her daughter Mrs Ilott, fell out long ago – when Mrs Ilott eloped and married Mr Ilott at the age of 17. That rift never healed despite some attempts at reconciliation and Mrs Jackson made a Will in her later life which gave her daughter nothing at all. She left everything to various charities with whom it did not appear she had any special connection.

      The question of whether or not Inheritance tax (IHT) should be scrapped is an emotive subject. Those in Government will no doubt look at the Office for Budget Responsibility who forecast IHT to rise to £5 billion in 2017-18. This is equivalent to 0.2 per cent of national income. On a percentage basis, it does not seem very much (in Government terms anyway) but why would the Government scrap an easy and assured way of collecting revenue in austere times?
