To dispute a will can be a very expensive and costly process. The legal costs if you lose can greatly exceed a potential claim.
This is another reason to instruct a solicitor to draft and review your Will.
Lost challenge to will costs litigant dearly Thursday, 29 October, 2015 A Berkshire woman who lost her legal challenge to her natural father's will may have to pay legal costs far higher than the amount she was left in the will. Chloe Brennan is the illegitimate daughter of Francois Devillebichot, and is his only issue. Her father died in March 2011, when it emerged that two weeks earlier he had executed a will leaving the bulk of his GBP630,000 estate to his four siblings. He left Chloe a legacy of GBP100,000.
