Contesting An Estate

Estate Dispute, Will Dispute Lawyers

The death of a loved one can bring out the worst in those left behind. Nearly every family has stories that involve disputes over the inheritance of property and other assets. Alternatively, family members may agree among themselves that a professional executor of the deceased person's estate is failing to perform the job adequately.

If you believe the estate of a family member was mishandled, you may have legal recourse. The estate litigation lawyers at Rollingsons Solicitors in London can tell you whether you have a valid claim. If so, we can make an application to the court on your behalf. We can represent you whether or not the person who died left a Will.

Possible Courses of Action

We may be able to bring a claim against the personal representatives or executor of the estate if the deceased person's assets were mismanaged or were not managed at all. If a personal representative failed in his or her duties, we may bring a claim for breach of trust, take steps to remove the personal representative from the position, and/or force him or her to provide a full accounting of the deceased's assets.

Sometimes a family member is named in a Will as executor (personal representative) of an estate, but does not fully understand or is unable to fulfil the duties of the position. Other times a professional who is designated as the executor mismanages the estate. Whether the mismanagement occurs due to incompetence, undue influence of a particular family member on the executor, or the intention to defraud the beneficiaries, we can step in and take action.
