If there were issues concerning the testator’s mental capacity when signing the Will, or they may not have understood the extent of their estate, or the effect of making a Will, then there may be grounds to challenge it on that basis.
Our team has considerable experience in dealing with claims relating to the validity of a Will if you happen to have any concerns that a Will has not been properly prepared.
For a Will to be valid it must be signed by the testator (the person making the Will) in the presence of two witnesses who must also each attest and sign the Will. Alternatively, the Will can be signed in the presence of the testator and at his direction. If any of these requirements are missing, the Will is invalid.
Also, the Will may be challenged if the testator was unduly influenced or pressurized by another when they made their Will.
