Rising inheritance disputes: Potential causes and mitigating risk

According to data from the Ministry of Justice, Will disputes are on the rise. 

Statistics demonstrate that in 2016 there were 145 reported inheritance disputes, versus 195 in 2023. This data could represent only a small number of actual issues, however, as some cases won’t necessarily go to court.

Kings Court Trust’s new blog explores this topic. The blog covers:

✔️ The potential causes of rising inheritance disputes
✔️ The importance of estate planning to avoid disputes
✔️ Discussing intergenerational wealth transfer with your clients
