The death of a loved relative or friend can be very hard to deal with. Bereavement and the feelings of sadness and loss can be all-consuming, blocking your ability to function normally and deal with practical issues. This can be particularly acute when it comes to dealing with disputes over inheritance and contesting a will.

Our team of probate and contested wills solicitors will help you to navigate the process and address any issues that arise, such as when a will is contested, sensitively and clearly. We will help you work through any disputes and ensure that the distribution of the estate is as it should be, taking the stress away from you and replacing it with the reassurance of having an expert on your side.

We can also help you deal with the issues that arise when the deceased has not left a will, known as intestacy. Our legal team will help you understand how to approach the distribution of the estate.

Below is a quick overview of a number of the ways in which our solicitors are able to support:

Property disputes can be distracting, time-consuming and costly. If they directly affect your own home, they can also be unsettling and adversely affect the way you feel about where you live.

For landlords, disputes with tenants or with neighbours to your property can negatively impact your portfolio, tie up resources and prevent you from making changes that will enhance the profitability or value of your holding. So, whatever the nature of the dispute, you want to find a solution quickly and cost-effectively.

Our highly experienced team of property litigators deal with disputes, and with non-contentious property work such as leasehold extensions. Wherever possible we will pursue solutions that do not involve litigation, such as mediation and arbitration, as these tend to be faster and less costly.
• Issues with leases
• Freehold and leasehold land
• Professional negligence claims
• Party Wall disputes
• Basement Extensions
• Extending you lease or buying your freehold
