Linder Myers Disputed Wills Service

Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy, and the grieving process can become more stressful when there is a dispute over the Will. At Linder Myers, our highly skilled team of Dispute Resolution Solicitors are committed to helping you get the best outcome for you and your family. Whether you have been left less than you had been expecting, or you are acting as an executor and a third party is making a claim against the Estate, or even if you simply want to raise concerns about the way in which the Will was prepared or signed, our specialists are here to help.

Going to Court can be an expensive and stressful process, and at Linder Myers, we explore each option, including Mediation and Negotiation in order to settle the matter in a quick and cost-effective way. We have a great deal of experience in Will Disputes, and we handle all cases with the upmost sensitivity and professionalism.

Wills

If you have concerns about the Will of a deceased loved one, it is essential to seek legal advice as soon as possible, as some claims, including Inheritance Act claims must be issued within 6 months of the date of Grant of Probate. At Linder Myers, our experts offer a no obligation interview for £75 plus VAT, which will help you to establish whether you have a claim, and what your options are.

The Validity of a Will

There may be concerns that the deceased was not of sound mind when the Will was made, or was put under pressure to distribute their assets in a certain way. At Linder Myers, our specialist team of Dispute Resolution Solicitors can assist you with obtaining the information concerning the drafting and preparation of the Will to help you decide whether the wishes of the deceased have been fully represented and adhered to. We can help you to challenge its validity, and will prevent the disposal of the estate until your issues are resolved.

Alternatively, you may be an Executor or a Beneficiary of the Will whose interests or intentions are being challenged. When you come to Linder Myers, an experienced professional will talk you through the merits of any such challenge and help you to defend against it as appropriate.

Adequate Provision

If you did not receive what you expected from a Will or you were a dependent on the deceased and your needs have not been adequately provided for, it is possible to seek financial provision out of the Estate. At Linder Myers, our experienced professionals will assess your case and advise you on your potential claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975.

We can also offer you support and assistance if you are a current Beneficiary or Executor of the Will who may be affected by such a claim.

Understanding the Terms of the Will

The terms of a Will can sometimes be unclear, and you may feel that the wishes of the deceased have been misinterpreted. At Linder Myers, our solicitors will talk you through whether the Will reflects the true intentions of the deceased and offer you simple, straight-forward advice on how best to proceed. We can then assist you with an application to the Court for a rectification of the Will. We understand that this is a difficult time, and we will do all we can to help you through each stage of the process.

Concerns about the Executors

If an Executor is failing to carry out the administration properly, it might be possible to take legal action. It is possible that the Will was not executed properly. If you have concerns about the actions of the Executor, one of our Will Dispute specialists can assess the case and assist you with an application to the Court for directions on what further steps should take place in order to administer the estate correctly. We will support you through each step of the process and will do all we can to secure the best outcome for you and your family.

Problems with Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney authorises another person to manage someone else’s financial affairs. A Lasting Power of Attorney is similar, but can only be used once the LPA has been registered, and the person granting it has become incapacitated. There are occasions when the suitability of the Attorney can be called into question, and if you are concerned about the Attorney’s management of the donor’s affairs, or suspect that they are acting fraudulently, we can help you to reach a resolution to the dispute as quickly as possible. We offer an initial consultation for £75 plus VAT, during which we will discuss the details of your case and offer you simple, honest advice on how best to proceed.

Court of Protection Disputes

If a person becomes incapable of managing their affairs, the Court of Protection can appoint a Deputy to deal with that person’s day to day affairs. Sometimes, concerns may arise as to the suitability of the Deputy, and their commitment to act in the best interests of the patient may be called into question. If a dispute arises, we can offer a no obligation interview for £75 plus VAT, during which we will discuss your options and help you to decide how to proceed.
