Mohammed v Mohammed
AS Solicitors successfully represented the Defendant in an inheritance case on the Will of the deceased worth £390,000.00.
The Claimant sought an Order that a reasonable financial provision be made for her from the estate of her late mother pursuant to the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. The concept of reasonable provision is the idea that it’s necessary for someone to leave a reasonable financial provision in their Will for anyone who’s been financially dependent on them in the time leading up to their death.
We successfully argued that the Claimant was not entitled to a ‘reasonable financial provision’ as she was not in need or financially dependent on the deceased. Being the blood daughter of the deceased did not give her an automatic right to a financial provision claim.
