Under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, potential beneficiaries are entitled to dispute wills or make claims where the deceased person has died intestate.
Those entitled to make inheritance act claims in relation to business assets, company ahares and investments include:
Under Section 2 of the act, any of the above people may apply to the court to make an inheritance act claim against the deceased person’s estate.
In most cases, claims must be made within 6 months of a Grant of Probate – as such, prompt legal advice is advisable.
