Crystal clear thinking

What is Forced Heirship and How will my Foreign Property be dealt with on my Death?

With the ownership of foreign holiday homes being more widespread than ever and the ease with which we can now move around the globe to live and work it is becoming increasingly common for our Inheritance Dispute team to be asked about contesting estates and wills abroad.

Contesting a will in England can be difficult enough, but when there is an overseas dimension it adds an additional layer of complexity and, inevitably, expense.

Avoiding Cross Border Headaches

Will beneficiary penalised for not disclosing lifetime gift to executors

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) have imposed a penalty of £87,000 on a beneficiary for failing to tell the executors of his father's estate about a cash gift he received the year before his father passed away.

The deceased was a businessman who at his death had an estate worth in the region of £3 million. He disinherited two of his children, left legacies of £150,000 to two more and the residue went to a fifth child, Clayton Hutchings.

Broken Promises: What is Estoppel?

We are often asked 'What is estoppel?', especially in the context of an inheritance dispute or contested Will claim. Solicitor Lee Dawkins provides the answers.

The calls we receive to our free legal helpline cover a huge variety of legal topics. In an average day we could field calls on issues ranging from a professional negligence claim against a vet, all the way through to a query about a discrimination in the workplace.

Some questions reoccur on a regular basis, so from time to time we cover the more important subjects in these blogs.

Man Dies From Accidental Dog Bite

A coroner's inquest has heard how a retired man from Hampshire died after being accidentally bitten by his Springer Spaniel during a game of tug-of-war.

Although the wound was immediately treated the man became unwell the following day.

He was subsequently admitted to the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, but doctors were unable to save him and he tragically died three days later.

The cause of death was given as multi-organ failure resulting from septicaemia.
