A Recent Family Inheritance Dispute

Mrs P lived with her unmarried daughter Miss P. When she died she left a will leaving her entire estate to Miss P and making no provision for her married daughter Mrs T. Mrs P left a clear explanation that the reason she was making no provision for Mrs T was that she was married and owned a home jointly with her husband. However, after proceedings were issued under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 we were able to negotiate a settlement and a court order was made giving Mrs T an interest in her late mother’s property which was subsequently paid to her on the death of her sister.
