Invalid Wills (revoked / unsigned / not witnessed wills) - If a will has been revoked, not signed or incorrectly witnessed, then it may again be possible to contest the will.

Inadequete Inheritance (inc. Not being adequately provided for by the will) - The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependents) Act 1975 allows the Challenge of a Will if you have not been adequately provided for by the Will AND you have a financial need i.e. on a low or no income, or you were financially dependant on the deceased.
