Inheritance Act Claims is the only updateable service devoted to claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family Dependants) Act 1975 and is now available as either a print or online subscription.

The interrelationship of claims under the 1975 Act and other areas of practice means that the law is constantly evolving. This clear and comprehensive work combines detailed explanatory commentary with invaluable precedents, case summaries and useful source material including consolidated legislation.

A subscription to Inheritance Act Claims provides:

  • Up to date - This work is updated twice annually to take account of all changes relevant to the 1975 Act, ensuring you are always kept up to date with developments in the field.
  • Practical - The text is supplemented by checklists, statutes, CPR, tables and precedent materials, which provide you with everything you need to advance your client's case successfully.
  • Authoritative - The author is leading chancery barrister, praised in Chambers & Partners for "knowing his subject thoroughly". He is assisted by a team of contributors with extensive experience not only in these claims, but also in divorce, tax and international trusts, ensuring that all angles are covered.
Inheritance Act Claims remains the most comprehensive work available on this increasingly important area of law and is an invaluable resource for private client solicitors, trust practitioners and lawyers as well as Chancery barristers and all family lawyers.

Subscription Information: 2 updating releases per year, charged separately on publication.
