27 Reasons to
Make a Will

Contested Probate

Sadly contentious or contested probate (also referred to as challenging a will) is becoming more common. However contested probate cases are often complex, and you need to make sure that you choose a solicitor specialising in this area of law. In addition to our fixed fee online probate service, we have a team of solicitors specialising in both bringing and defending contested probate cases.


Please think carefully before contesting probate. Quite apart from the stress and financial cost a contested probate case brings, it often causes irreparable damage to family relationships.


There are a number of reasons for contesting probate including;

  • Inheritance disputes – when dependants feel that they have not been made 'reasonable financial provision' from the estate (under the 1975 Inheritance Act)
  • Claims that the will is fraudulent or was made under duress
  • Claims that the will is not actually the last will of the deceased
  • Arguments that the deceased lacked sufficient mental capacity when making their will
  • Professional negligence claims arising out of wrongly drafted wills
  • Claims against or between personal representatives or trustees
  • The will has been lost
