Articles on estate disputes
Estate disputes are about contesting a will for more, “adequate provision”, or some aspect of its administration. Disputes can also be over allegations that the deceased lacked the required testamentary capacity. Or made their will under undue influence.
Executors, administrators, beneficiaries and others with a special interest can be involved. The legal personal representatives of the deceased named in their will – their executors and trustees are required to defend the will.
