Applications can be made to the court to rectify errors in a Will in circumstances where:-
Such applications must be made to the
Court within 6 months from when the grant of representation is obtained.
The court will only grant an extension of time in limited circumstances and
therefore it is important to seek legal advice without delay.
For a rectification claim to succeed,
the Court will require strong evidence that the Will is not drafted in the way
that the testator had intended.
Where an action to rectify a Will is
successful, there may be grounds to pursue a professional negligence claim
against the solicitor who drafted the Will.
