Inheritance Act Claim
Claire acted on behalf of a claimant whose partner had died and whose will failed to make any financial provision for her. His children from a previous relationship inherited the whole of his estate. The deceased was a businessman, who owned various properties and other assets. He also owned the family home, where he had lived with the claimant and their daughter. The claim was settled on the basis that the family home, worth over £300,000, was transferred to the claimant outright, and she also received a lump sum from the estate.
