The administration of an estate can be a very complex and lengthy process and disputes can often arise.

Issues that commonly arise include:

  • Delay or a refusal by a personal representative in obtaining a Grant of Probate/Grant of Letters of Administration 
  • Delays to the administration of the estate
  • Co-habitation arrangements, joint ownership and pre or post-nuptial agreements 
  • Missing beneficiaries
  • A lack of clarity with regards to the terms of a Will or of a trust
  • A breach of duty by a trustee
