    What is an Inheritance Act Claim?

    In short it is an application made (Pursuant to the Inheritance Act) by a person seeking to be either a beneficiary of a deceased’s estate or a larger beneficiary. It is not a challenge to the validity of the deceased’s will not is it a claim against the estate. It should be viewed as redistribution of the estate between the beneficiaries of the estate under the existing Will or rules of intestacy and the applicant.

    An application can be made for various reasons however the most commons scenarios are where insufficient provision has been made for a disabled person or where an unmarried couple have no valid will and the rules of intestacy make no provision for the surging partner.
