Unfortunately, people do sometimes fall out over wills, trusts and estates. Situations can arise where a person feels they should have received more from the deceased than they actually did.


It might be that the deceased wrote their will when they were not mentally fit to do so, or they were under the influence another person who persuaded them to change their will. Possibly family or others who were dependant on the deceased can find they have been left nothing or very little and feel that their support should continue. All of these situations could lead to a valid claim against the estate of the deceased.


Issues often arise from trust documents, where the wording is not entirely clear or where the trustees are not sure what they are entitled to. Beneficiaries of a trust can sometimes feel that the trustees are not acting as they should.
