Charities Win Landmark Illott v The Blue Cross and others Will dispute appeal

Animal charities win their case in a landmark judgment at the Supreme Court against a Heather Ilott, the woman cut out of her mother’s will.

Although each case contesting a Will is decided on its individual merit, this Judgment is likely to make it more difficult for adult children to challenge their parent’s Wills under the Inheritance Act and it may give people executing a Will greater strength to resist any challenges.

It may also give peace of mind to those people writing a Will that their wishes will be followed, and children can still be disinherited, unless certain criteria are met by the challenging party.
