Broken promises – proprietary estoppel claims

Find a person by name
Or choose a department

Were you promised something by someone who has died, but have not received it under their Will?

If the deceased made a promise to you that has been broken you may be able to bring a claim if you can establish the following:

  1. That there was a promise
  2. That you did something to rely on that promise
  3. That what you did was to your detriment or you incurred a burden

Perhaps a disappointed beneficiary is claiming that the deceased made a promise to them that has been broken and you are an executor or another beneficiary.

No matter what your capacity we can advise and assist you in dealing with a proprietary estoppel claim.
