Estate Disputes

Too often family members and friends or associates of deceased persons become involved in disputes over the estate.

Disputes relate to:

  • The construction of a Will
  • The validity of a Will
  • The property comprised in the property of the estate
  • The conduct of the trustee/s of the estate
  • Claims against the estate
  • Claims against an estate for provision not provided for in the Will (known as Family Provision claims)

On occasions those disputes can be resolved relatively quickly and on other occasions courts are required to determine the claims.
