Contested Wills

A great session at the IoF convention: The Great Legacy Debate. Fiona Campbell-White from Wilsons solicitors indicated that the number of contested wills might well fall due to the new legal aid rules:¬†legal aid cannot now be used to contest a Will. The bad news was that she believes that lack of testamentary capacity cases will rocket due to the ageing population. I can’t wait for the day when solicitors are more like (Fiona and also Jonathan from Stone King) who help guide charities¬†for the mutual benefit of all concerned. As the ageing population grows charities need to be really sensitive to families.
