We have a comprehensive knowledge of wills, probate and estates matters.

Members of Three Stone are often instructed on disputes relating to the succession of property, including questions relating to capacity, undue influence, breach of trust, estoppel and fraud, validity of wills (including undue influence and capacity issues), the construction and rectification of wills, the administration of estates, the duties and removal of personal representatives, claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, and professional negligence claims arising out of the defective drafting of wills and estate administration.

We also have significant experience of non-contentious probate matters (such as applications for the removal of caveats, applications for grants of administration, and applications under section 116 of the Senior Courts Act 1981).

Members of chambers also frequently advise on the drafting of wills and deeds of variation.
