Inheritance Act Claims 3rd ed covers statutory provision in circumstances of inadequate provision in a will or under the laws of intestacy.

It explains the law, practice and procedure in a straightforward and practical way, so practitioners can assess the merits of a potential claim along with its cost implications.

Inheritance Act Claims: Law and Practice:-

  • Covers all the relevant legislation and cases and explains how the law is applied and what the court must take into account make when considering a claim
  • Discusses practice and procedure, dealing with matters that may arise before, during and after making a claim under the 1975 Act
  • Contains a detailed set of appendices including all relevant legislation, case summaries, rules, orders and forms designed to help you build your claim
  • Includes questionnaires in the appendices, designed to help you assemble all the relevant facts at the start of a case when either making or resisting a claim

New to the 3rd Edition:-

  • Useful precedents, including a claim form, claimant’s witness statement, and personal representative’s witness statement in accordance with CPR r.57.16(5), cross-referenced to the appropriate questionnaires in the appendices
  • Fully updated in the light of recent cases such as such as Fielden v Cunliffe, P v G, P and P (Family Provision; Relevance of Divorce Provision), Baynes v Hedger, Negus v Bahouse, Ilott v Mitson and others
  • Revised sections on pre-action protocols, Part 36 offers and their costs consequences, costs generally, and the appeals regime
  • Survey of proposed legislative and procedural changes, particularly the Law Commission proposals for the reform of the law of intestacy and family provision
