How long do you have to contest a will?

There is a primary time limit for bringing inheritance claims of six months from the date of the grant of representation, but we would suggest that you do so within 6 months of the date of death.

However, the law relating to the limitation on claims is complex and the simple message is that if you think you may want to claim, take legal advice as soon as possible. There may also need to be other urgent steps to be taken to protect your position.
