Claims Against the Estate

Anthony Gold


When: 18 July 2018

Time: 5.30pm Registration for a 6.00pm Start followed by Drinks & Canapés

Venue: Grange Hotel Holborn, 50 - 60 Southampton Row, London , WC1B 4AR

Anthony Gold’s Beth Holden will present alongside Ian Robbins and Guy Holland of 36 Family on claims against the Estate.

Ian Robbins will provide a case update in cases under the Inheritance Act since Ilott V Mitson and speak briefly on an unusual situation where the deceased is a child and the applicant one of the parents.

Guy Holland will discuss proprietary estoppel claims against estates with a focus on recent decisions and how the courts should approach the question of relief.

Beth Holden will look at what happens when a will may have been destroyed or revoked. Her talk will examine the requirements for valid revocation, and the circumstances in which revocation may be conditional on another event. She will discuss a High Court case concerning conditional revocation which she has recently been involved in, which is one of the rare number of decisions on this point. She will also consider revival of wills where testators may wish to undo an act of earlier revocation.
