Contentious Probate Claims

Contentious probate refers to any dispute relating to the administration of someone’s estate when they die. This could involve anything from a dispute over the value of assets to dealing with difficult executors. 

 At Sandstone Legal, we understand that dealing with the death of a loved one is hard enough without also throwing in complicated probate matters. Which is why we can help you challenge a will or contest probate on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that, at no cost to you, we will check whether you have a valid contentious probate claim.  

Our team can help you contest a will if: 

  • You haven’t been provided with what you expected to receive or were promised you’d receive. 
  • You’ve been unfairly excluded from the will. 
  • The will was changed despite your loved one saying it would not be changed. 
  • There’s something wrong with the will. 
  • Your loved one was pressured into changing their will. 
  • Your loved one didn’t have the mental capacity to produce a will; for example, they suffered from dementia. 
  • The executor won’t pay you what you’re entitled to. 
  • The will has been made, or changed, fraudulently.  
  • The will was not signed or witnessed correctly. 

There can be a time limit on contesting a will. Some claims need to be brought forward within six months, such as Inheritance Tax claims, or you may not be able to make a claim. Don’t take the risk – contact us today on 03331 883818 or fill out our contact form below if you think you have a claim.

Matters will be dealt with by a Probate Practitioner with relevant practical experience and training.
