Challenges to Wills

How to contest a will

A will can be challenged on one or more of the following grounds:

  1. Lack of "testamentary capacity";
  2. Lack of valid execution;
  3. Lack of knowledge and approval;
  4. Undue influence;
  5. Fraud or forgery; or
  6. Rectification and construction claims.

Certain relatives and dependants can challenge a will or intestacy if the provision made for them is insufficient by claiming under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
