Property and Assets Disputes Lawyers in St Helens
The death of a loved one is a difficult time, and disputes over the property and assets left behind can cause tension and upset for all involved. If there is a dispute over how the estate of someone who has passed away is distributed, Hattons can help to resolve this in a professional and sensitive way.
A property or asset dispute may arise if the will has been changed shortly before death. This may involve, for example, a transfer of property to someone before the testator passed away, and the affected property is something that you feel you should have been entitled to inherit. In these cases, it may be possible to challenge the transfer if it was invalid due to a reason such as undue influence (e.g. somebody putting pressure on the testator), or fraud, or lack of capacity on behalf of the testator to make the decision to transfer.
Hattons can help you to deal with the contentious and sensitive matters involved in disputing the distribution of property and assets of a loved one who has passed away. It is vital to seek expert legal advice so that you can understand what your rights are and how to claim the property and assets to which you are entitled.
