Notable Disputes cases

  • Disputed Wills & Trusts

    Defending a claim for the pronouncement of a Will in solemn form and counterclaiming that the Deceased’s last Will was invalid on the grounds that the testator lacked the requisite testamentary capacity, nor did he know and approve the contents of the Will. There was an alternative claim of proprietary estoppel if the Court found the Will to be valid.

  • Trust of Land Disputes

    Defending an application for an order for sale and counterclaiming for a greater interest in the property based on a common intention constructive trust, or alternatively a resulting trust. Also had to investigate whether there was a professional negligence claim against the conveyancers who dealt with the original purchase of the property.

  • Inheritance Disputes

    Defending a claim by a deceased’s spouse under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, which involved the deceased’s last Will attempting to change the legacies made within an earlier Mutual Will. The existence of the Mutual Will impacted on the claim and the net estate available.

  • Landlord & Tenant Disputes

    Possession proceedings against a trespasser who intimated having an interest in the land but who was unable to evidence the same.
