There are many ways in which a solicitor may be negligent in preparing a ill.  There are some common examples.

  • Undue delay in the preparation or execution of a will
  • Mistakes in the execution of a will
  • Negligent or incorrect tax advice
  • Negligence relating to the deceased’s state of mind or mental capacity at the time of making the will (issues relating to dementia or similar conditions for instance)
  • The will was drafted under “undue Influence”; this relates to a situation in which it is suspected or believed that the deceased may have been pressured at the time of giving instructions for or signing the will
