Being forced to incur legal costs by bogus estate claim.

Is there no redress in the law for this?

 

Why is someone who has no legal claim on an estate allowed to drag us through litigation?

Can we sue for costs?

Do we sue the claimant or her solicitors?

hi

you'll have to slightly expand on what is behind your query..

 

who's estate?

who is this person in relation to the person who owns the estate and why do they think they have a claim?

A girlfriend, she claims to be a dependent and to have been living with him. Both false claims. She has large properties in Thailand and london which she put in her sons name after my fathers death.

sorry for your loss..it can be a difficult time

this might be a wee bit outside of advice that can be effectively given on a forum.

 

what type of legal claim has been raised please?

where in the probate etc process are things currently or has the estate of your late father already been settled ?

i was guess you are an executor of the estate too?

Yes I am the executor and the estate has been settled.  

 

She has made a statement with a solicitor and wants mediation.

 

But there is no basis for a claim as we have evidence that she wasn’t cohabiting, was living with another man as his ‘carer’ and was not dependent yet her solicitor still supports her claim against 1975 act.  
 

Seems unfair, will we be allowed to claim our costs back for example? 
 

we feel we are being dragged through litigation without any basis for it.

ok thank you.

 

please don't take the questions i am asking as a bit naff and p'haps could be viewed as pointless , but i am simply gathering what information might be needed when obviously more the knowledgeable members appear in the morning. more of an info gathering stage at present.

 

you indicate mediation, so my last question is how far 'in' are you regarding the court claim she has made, at what stage and have you appointed a solicitor yet as you indicate a worry about costs...i hope not as there might not be a need too,

 

you would gander your costs against the claimant, but is this a small claims county court claim? , in the family section or whatever its called?

How do you know so much about this girlfriend ?

 

The girlfriends Solicitors obviously believes they have evidence to support a claim being made against the estate.  What evidence have they provided to you ?

 

 

 

We could do with some help from you.

I know these things because I was very close to my father. She can’t have evidence that she was cohabiting and dependent because it’s not true. 
 

I just want to know why the onus is on us to defend and not on her to produce evidence really.  This seems unjust. As well as expensive.

sounds like this is just a money grabber thats gone off to one of these No Win No Fee internet solicitor and got them to issue a speculative claim. who is the solicitor please too?

 

can you please answer the q's in my last post.

you don't have to shell out for any expensive defence, and it not for you to prove the negative, it's for her to prove her case...sounds like she hasn't got much of one either. 

how long since you father died and when was the estate all settled ?

there are strict time limits upon claims made against an estate.

how much is the claim for too?
