What are the grounds for contesting a will?
There are a number of grounds for contesting a will, including:
- A lack of testamentary capacity
- A lack of knowledge and approval
- Undue influence

It may also be that there was a clerical error in the drafting of the will which means that the will does not do as was intended. This could lead to a rectification or construction claim.
