Defending an Inheritance Act claim
As an executor or personal representative you have certain obligations to the court to provide information about the deceased’s estate. If you have no personal interest in the estate (in that you are not a claimant or beneficiary) then you should remain neutral in any claim. If you fail to do so the court may make a costs order against you.
As a beneficiary of the estate you can choose to actively defend the claim or remain neutral. There can be different cost implications for you in making this decision which we would be happy to advise you about.
