If a member of your family has died and their provision for you in their will is not what you expected, we may be able to challenge the will and make a claim under an Act known as the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
When a loved one dies, it is not always possible to sort out their affairs as quickly and as easily as your loved one or close family member may have hoped. You may have concerns that the will is not a genuine will, that it is invalid or that yourself or a close family member has been unfairly left out. If you feel strongly about this, then please contact Fylde Law’s team of solicitors who can help and advise you as to whether you may have a claim under the Inheritance Act.
Who can make a claim under the act?
Our clients range from very young children to elderly clients and from both wealthy and poor backgrounds. As with all services at Fylde Law, our aim is to provide a risk free, hassle free service to secure your entitlement as soon as possible.
What can I claim for?
The aim of the Inheritance (Provision of Family and Dependants) Act 1975 is to ensure that you are fairly financially provided for if you have been left out of a will unfairly, or as a result of an intestacy (where a person dies without a will).
If you have been left out of a will entirely or if you or somebody who is dependent upon you feels they have not been left as much as they might need, then we can help.
Can I make a claim if there is something suspicious about the will?
Yes. The Inheritance Act is limited to claims by people who are dependent upon the deceased before their death. However, Fylde Law Solicitors can also act for you in relation to a number of Will and Inheritance related disputes.
If your concern is about a will or the failure of a will to make proper provision for you or a close family member, then please feel free to contact Fylde Law on 01253 730 070 or via the 'quick enquiry' form and we will be happy to provide you with some free advice and guidance.
