Other ICL services
In order to fully enforce your inheritance rights, you may need to make some additional claims.
These extra claims may include:
Claims that the will maker was mentally incapable of making a will.
Claims that the will is invalid because the will maker did not approve the content of the will and its effect.
Claims that the will maker was under improper pressure to make a will and therefore had no real choice.
Will not properly signed
claims that the will was not signed as required by law.
Another will found
Claims that a second valid will has been discovered, that should operate instead of the other will. In this situation, if you do not get the second will enforced, the first will may be implemented instead.
Will is forged
Claims that a will is invalid due to forgery concerns. A forgery is where a will is tampered with or altered in a way that changes its meaning. A forged will may even be a 'fake' that was never agreed to or signed by the will maker.
In claims types like those set out above, most of the legal fees payable for the case are likely to be solicitor's fees, although other expenses may be substantial too, such as barrister's fees and court fees.
If ICL agrees to manage these types of claims for you, we would make our fee arrangements with you on a case by case basis. We are often able to offer you a 'no win no fee' arrangement regarding our fees but you are likely to have to pay barrister's fees separately, and irrespective of whether your claim is successful or not.
