Judgment of the Supreme Court in Ilott v Mitson
Location: Serle Court
The seminar will look at the implications of the decision in Ilott v Mitson, the first appeal in a claim under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975 to be heard by the Supreme Court.
It will focus on:-
- Maintenance - what does it mean now, including if the claimant is on benefits?
- Charities and litigating 1975 Act claims
- What weight should be given to a testator's wishes, and to the relationship between the testator and the claimant?
- Claims by adult children - in what circumstances can a claimant hope to succeed? What advice should a private client solicitor be giving a testator when preparing a will?
This seminar is now fully booked.
