What are the grounds for contesting a will?


There are a number of grounds for contesting a will, including:

  • A lack of testamentary capacity
  • A lack of knowledge and approval
  • Undue influence
  • Fraud or forgery
  • A lack of valid execution

It may also be that there was a clerical error in the drafting of the will which means that the will does not do as was intended. This could lead to a rectification or construction claim.
