Failure to follow correct process - contesting a will
Wills are only valid if certain formalities were followed when they were prepared and signed. For example, the Will must be signed by two witnesses in the presence of the person making the Will.
Where a Will fails to meet the necessary requirements – as sometimes happens when a Will is made without using a solicitor – the Will Claim can be brought contesting the Will.
Will Claims and legal actions to contest a will is a specialist legal area and it is important to instruct a solicitor with experience in contesting wills.
If someone close to you has recently passed away leaving a Will and you are concerned that the required formalities were not complied with when the Will was drafted, you may be able to bring a Will Claim disputing the Will.
