What is "Contesting a Will"?

A Will can be contested where it is believed to have been made fraudulently, or was made under duress or the person did not have the mental capacity to make it. A claim can also be made under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependants) Act 1975 by a spouse/child/civil partner of the deceased who believe that reasonable provision has not been made for them in the Will and they have a financial need or a need for maintenance.

Timescale to Contest

Does the Deceased have to have lived in England or Wales?

Yes, it is only possible to contest a will if the deceased was a resident of England or Wales.

Do you deal with claims in any part of the country?

RSR law deals with claims across the whole of England and Wales. The initial investigations will be conducted over the telephone and you will be given direct contact details of the team dealing with your case. If needed the solicitor will come to see you to discuss your case.

What is the Grant of Representation?

There are three main types of grant of representation, each of which are simply the Court's authority to the executor giving them permission to administer the deceased's estate.

  1. Grant of Probate - if there is an executor willing to act.
  2. Grant of Letters of Administration - if there is no Will.
  3. Grant of Letters of Administration with will annexed - if there is a Will but none of the executors are willing to act.

Collectively these are known as Grant of Representation. In the majority of cases it will be the Grant of Probate issued, more commonly known as just Probate.

What is a Standing Search?

A search can be made with the Probate Office to see if a Grant of Probate has been issued AND if there is a Will. In a situation where is no Will and / or if Grant of Probate has not been issued you can ask the Probate Registry to carry out a 'Standing Search'. This is valid for 6 months and if Probate is granted within this period, the Registry will notify you and provide a copy of the Grant and Will (if there is one).

I have had little contact with my parent in years and have been left nothing in their will?

If you have been estranged from the deceased (i.e. not spoken to for several years), it may still be possible to contest their will, however this will depend on your circumstances, and we would need to assess your case.

A grandchild has not been left money by their grandparents can they (or their parent) contest the will?

Unless the grandchild is the sole living relative, was living with the grandparents, treated as a child, or dependent on them financially it will not be possible to contest the will under the Inheritance Act.

Can I get my inheritance increased because I am looking after the deceased's pet?
