Bringing and defending proceedings concerning the ownership of property disposed of under a will
Our initial assessment following your email enquiry is free.
If it is agreed that we need some more information before we can establish whether you have a valid case we will agree a reasonable fixed fee to make initial enquiries on your behalf. This sum is payable in advance and can be made by card over the telephone.
Once we have the relevant information we can then assess the viability of your matter. If there is a case to pursue we can then discuss the options available, including NO WIN NO FEE and private paying. Regrettably, we are unable to take legally aided cases.
We will also discuss the funding options at this point. If it is more appropriate to charge on a private basis we will endeavour to agree a fixed fee with you.
Claims may be brought by those who have a right to property disposed of under a will eg if a property was promised by the deceased to someone who has relied upon that promise.
Claims often arise where family members have made contributions towards the equity on a house purchase. As a consequence of this being a 'family' arrangement, there may be little or no documentation of the intention of the parties. A dispute subsequently arises as to whether the contribution was a gift, a loan or the acquisition of a percentage share in the property purchased. Rising property values mean the distinction is often worth a large amount of money.
