Inheritance Act Claims

Our specialist team at Fosters is here to help you bring or defend a claim brought under the Inheritance (Provision for Family & Dependents) Act 1975.

When a person dies, certain categories of person can apply to the court on the basis a will (or intestacy if there is no will) does not make reasonable financial provision for that claimant. There are time limits in which to bring claims, so delay can be perilous.

At Fosters we have routinely helped family members and other dependents to seek reasonable financial provision in circumstances in which they have been overlooked. Conversely, we act for those having to defend this type of claim, such as beneficiaries that would be affected by a variation to the provisions in a will and personal representatives with responsibility for administering estates according to the law.

Initial Consultation

We offer initial consultations to new clients at significantly reduced rates. We follow up on face-to-face advice in writing. Our aim is to give you the perspective you need to make an informed decision about how to move forward. We are happy to have an initial phone discussion (without obligation on you) to ascertain how best we can assist.
