Defending A Will

Losing a loved one or someone close is a difficult and sad time for you. If you are the executor named in the Will, this can add more pressure and stress at a time where you already feel overwhelmed with circumstances.

This role becomes even more problematic if there is a challenge or contest on the Will and legal action will be taken against you, as the executor of the estate.

We understand the pressure you are under but we can help you. You need to know where you stand legally and the legal position of the Will and estate too. Contact us now to find out what we can do to help.

How Can I Be Legally Responsible?

Once you are named as an executor in a Will, you agree to take on certain legal responsibilities and as a result, if you do not follow the probate procedure correctly, there may be issues for you personally.

If someone makes a claim against the Will you are executor for, you will need to tread carefully. If you do not act as you are required to by law or you do not do anything at all, you may held personally responsible and you could face legal action yourself.
