Estate Disputes

Dealing with the distribution of a loved one’s estate can be a complex and emotionally charged process and unfortunately, disputes can sometimes arise. We specialise in helping you navigate estate disputes with sensitivity and expertise.

What you Need to Know

At Tann Law, we understand that throughout the process of handling a loved ones estate, disputes can sometimes arise among family members or beneficiaries, adding further stress to an already difficult situation.

Our mission is to help you find the best resolution to your dispute, utilising mediation and negotiation where possible in order to find an amicable agreement. While litigation is often a last choice, we will diligently advocate on your behalf if this becomes necessary.

What are Estate Disputes?

Estate disputes can take various forms, and they often stem from disagreements over the deceased’s will, the distribution of assets, or the actions of executors or administrators. These disputes can be emotionally taxing and legally intricate. 

Here are some common scenarios that may lead to estate disputes:

Challenges to the Will: Beneficiaries or family members may contest the validity of the will, alleging issues such as undue influence, lack of capacity, or improper execution.

Inheritance Claims: Some family members or dependents may feel they have not been adequately provided for in the will and may seek a larger share of the estate.

Executor or Administrator Disputes: Disagreements may arise between executors or administrators responsible for managing the estate, potentially leading to allegations of mismanagement or misconduct.

Asset Distribution: Disputes can occur over the distribution of specific assets or properties mentioned in the will, particularly if they hold sentimental value.

Inheritance Tax Challenges: Beneficiaries may challenge the calculation or payment of inheritance tax, leading to disagreements over the tax liability.
