about inheritance disputes
It may be the Will has been written in a way that is legally invalid. However, even if a Will is valid and legally accurate, there are still some circumstances under which disputes can occur, particularly in cases where the family situation is complex.
At Goughs we can help with the following:
- Contesting the validity of a Will
- Claims on estates where there is no Will
- Representing those who have been left out of a Will
- Addressing mistakes made in Wills, or handling cases where a Will has been lost or destroyed
- Handling claims that promises were not honoured in a Will
- Court of protection disputes
- Solving disputes between executors or trustees
- Investigating attorneys or deputies who are abusing their positions
If you think you have an inheritance claim or grounds to contest a Will, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. Contact our solicitors today.
All inheritance disputes need to be handled with sensitivity. At Goughs, we can help you to resolve matters as quickly and cost effectively as possible with a strategic and pragmatic plan.

I engaged the services of Goughs Solicitors in Trowbridge, in particular Ailie Peacock, to act on my behalf for the sale of my house. Ailie was always clear with her advice, acted in a timely manor and answered any questions I had almost immediately. She was very proactive in dealing with the other parties involved in a slightly convoluted chain.
Ailie also managed a very late request from our buyers with calm efficiency and the utmost professionalism. The end result was a smooth sale and completion, with remarkably little stress on our part. I would not hesitate from using them again.
Clear concise advice
Quick response to e-mails or phone calls. Will certainly use again in the near future. Clear concise advice patiently given!

Excellent service as usual.
Superb once again.
Superb once again. Goughs provides outstanding service... professional in getting the job done and conducted with grace and care. Thank you Goughs!
The solicitor I dealt with at Goughs, Rhianna Cole, was an absolute star, I cannot fault her in any way at all. She made everything in the situation I was in so easy to understand, and she guided me through an extremely stressful time, with extreme professionalism, yet a very personal and sensitive touch. Can't big them up enough.
Made first-time buying a (relatively) simple process!
Sophie was very attentive and responsive and understood the need to act quickly in regard to our purchase process. She was diligent with the paperwork and was very easy to talk to and clear at explaining what was required in terms of action from our side and from the seller.

Nadine was fantastic
Nadine was fantastic, by far the best conveyancing process we’ve ever experienced, would recommend her to anyone. She was professional and communicative at all times, thank you
Very happy with the service provided.
Nadine said at the beginning that she was proactive, easy to say, but she proved to be so. She dealt with all matters efficiently by e-mail and e-letter. I also had two face to face meetings and she took the time to explain things clearly which is important. Very happy with the service provided.
