Q. How can I defend a challenge against a will?
If the trustees or executors (often known as Personal Representatives) have not acted in the best interests of the estate and you are a beneficiary you may be able to apply to the court to have them removed.
Other situations where you may want to make an application to the court include:
- If the PRs have failed to provide adequate information to the beneficiaries.
- If the PRs have acted negligently.
- If you do not think they have invested the deceased’s money appropriately.
- If they are being dishonest or have acted unreasonably.
- If the PR is also a beneficiary and you fear there may be a conflict of interest.
