Sometimes, after a person has passed away those that are left behind may be surprised at the content of their friend or loved one’s Will (or indeed the outcome if there isn’t a Will). There may be a number of reasons why parties may feel it right to challenge the administration of an estate including:
- Distribution of assets
- Choice of executors
- Worries about the deceased’s state of mind or undue influence at the time the Will was made
- Concerns that they have been excluded from benefitting from the estate unfairly
