Increase in Contested Wills

April 6, 2011
High Court statistics show that in the last year the number of cases in which a Will is challenged has risen sharply. In 2006 there were only 10 such cases, increasing to 80 in 2008 and 110 in 2009. A Will can be challenged on various grounds by children, spouses, or co-habitees who have not been left sufficient provision by the deceased in their Will. There are other grounds of challenge, for example that the person making the Will did not possess the necessary mental capacity at the time they signed their Will.
