Other Legal Advice

Challenging professional advisers or holding to account those who failed to deliver a service is never easy. For example, you may wish to challenge a will if you suspect it was written under pressure or did not reflect the wishes of the person making it, or it does not make reasonable financial provision for you.


What happens when a professional expert lets you down? Have you suffered financial loss? Broken promises in a will about inheriting property or land? Access Legal can help you with any legal dispute.

Legal Disputes can take many forms in addition to those mentioned elsewhere on our website, such as a professional adviser that has failed to provide you with competent advice, a dispute with a neighbour over property, the purchase of faulty goods, or a dispute about the will of a loved one.

For example, if you have suffered a loss due to poor advice or error by your accountant, are out of pocket because your surveyor failed to spot major problems with a property you purchased, your solicitor made a mistake when acting for you in the purchase of your property, or your professional adviser's negligence and poor advice cost you worry and money, you may have a claim for professional negligence.

You may wish to challenge a will when someone close to you dies and fails to leave you as much as you thought in their will, or a promise of inheriting land or property on which you were relying is broken by a will. You may have concerns about the validity of the will of a loved one, for example if you think they were pressured into making it, did not have sufficient mental capacity to make a will, or the will was not properly signed and witnessed. You may also be able to make a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Dependants) Act 1975 if a will does not make reasonable financial provision for you.

Likewise, if you are an executor or beneficiary of an estate where the will or estate is being challenged, we can advise you as to what your duties are, and how you should respond in such circumstances.

Whatever your legal dispute may be, Access Legal can help you obtain compensation and claim back losses you have suffered by advising you on what evidence you need, guiding you through what can be a difficult and emotionally challenging experience.

'I was left jaded by my experience of the previous solicitors, but Access Legal got the best possible outcome from a bad situation. I would thoroughly recommend them to all my family and friends.'
