Inheritance Act 1975 Claims

Inheritance Act 1975 Claims

The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 is a very important piece of law because it can change completely the way in which a deceased person’s estate is distributed.  Using this law, a person can stand to inherit from an estate even if they are not named in the deceased’s will.

This means the deceased’s will may not be final, and anyone who is left disappointed by its contents could make a 1975 Act application, to receive all or part of the estate.

If you are left disappointed by the terms of a will or if you are already a beneficiary of an estate against which a 1975 Act application is being made, BakerLaw has specialist lawyers to help you.  Whether you are pursuing or defending an application, we will aim to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We will also aim to resolve the dispute without the expense and strain of court proceedings, but if they are necessary, you will receive strong representation.

BakerLaw also offers a range of options to fund your legal costs, which may include ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements.

Above all, your lawyer will work closely with you, one-on-one, to the resolution of your case, to ensure that you receive a personalised service.
