Unfortunately disputes do sometimes arise after the death of a loved one.
The validity of the Will itself may be in question, or a disappointed beneficiary may be either contesting the terms of the Will, or making an application for reasonable provision under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.
The role of executor (or administrator) is an onerous one, and there are rules that must be followed. If an executor does not administer an estate correctly, then they may be personally liable for any losses of the estate. It is possible to remove the executor from the position and replace them with someone else.
