The soaring cost of property prices in the last decade is only one of the reasons that we have seen an increase in inheritance claims. The rise of second or even third families and the increased knowledge that people now possess relating to inheritance claims has led to an upsurge of inheritance disputes involving the legal profession.
While sound legal advice is vital in these cases, it is always preferable that such disputes are settled amicably between parties rather than resorting to legal redress. Irreparable family rifts can be caused by introducing lawyers and solicitors to the dispute.
Should your best efforts at resolving the situation fail however, it is imperative that you seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity, bearing in mind the six month rule that applies to claimants in these disputes.
At Hedleys we can offer sympathetic and timely advice relating to all aspects of inheritance claims.
