Is your Will up-to-date?

Official figures suggest that the number of disputes around the distribution of estates rose by a massive 700% between 2007 and 2012. This startling increase has been attributed to a number of key factors including the increase in house prices and significant changes in family dynamics over the last decade. It is suggested that this now means that more people have reason to dispute how an estate is distributed.
