Wills – Let us show you the way
Our director Keith Hardington was recently featured on the Telegraph & Argus website talking about how to protect yourself from a Will dispute.
Keith has over 30 years of experience as a trusted solicitor and is also an accredited civil dispute mediator, having resolved a number of complex cases.
The majority of issues arise from a lack of clarity with regards to the Will owner’s final wishes or some of the individual’s assets are not included in the Will.
Speaking to the T&A, Keith said: “Disputes usually arise because someone is unhappy with the terms of a Will.
“Often, they believe promises were made to them which aren’t fulfilled by the Will, or perhaps the Will fails to make reasonable provision.
“Claims can also arise where a substantial gift has been left to someone unexpected, such as a carer, a neighbour, or even a charity.”
There are several circumstances when someone may challenge a Will, including lack of capacity or illness.
At Walker Foster, we can not only help you create a Will, set up Trust or Lasting Powers of Attorney but ensure your final wishes are carried out.
You can learn more about Wills, Probate, Lasting Powers of Attorney + Trusts and our Dispute Resolution & Litigation service on their dedicated pages on our website.
