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.

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.
