Contentious Probate Solicitors In Essex

Normally when a person dies, the family of the deceased will deal with their assets as per the terms of the will or under the rules of intestacy and often little legal assistance is required. A contentious probate claim will however arise where a beneficiary challenges the will either because they believe the deceased did not have the mental capacity to make a valid will, or it was not made correctly, or the deceased was influenced in some way. A person can also claim that they have not been left adequate provision from the Estate if they were closely related or a dependant of the deceased.

We can assist in providing initial advice as to whether you have a potential claim and if so what steps you should take immediately to protect the assets from being distributed, be notified if a Grant of Probate has been applied for and put a block on it, through to issue or defence of a claim. If you are an Executor and have no beneficial interest in the Estate but require legal advice then you are entitled to obtain this with the costs being borne by the Estate.
