There are many reasons for contested Wills claims, including:

  • Wrongly drafted Wills giving rise to professional negligence claims
  • Claims against or between trustees or personal representatives
  • The deceased lacked mental capacity
  • The Will was made fraudulently or under duress
  • The Will is invalid
  • It is not the last Will of the deceased
  • Lost Will
