One in four Brits would challenge a loved one’s will

According to our research carried out on behalf of Direct Line, one-in-four (24%) of British adults would carry out a legal challenge if they weren’t happy with a loved one’s will.

Some interesting regional differences were also revealed. For example, people in Southampton, Norwich and London are the most likely to mount a legal challenge; almost a third (31%) of those living in Southampton said they would dispute a loved one’s will. On the other hand, those in Sheffield are the least inclined to do so.

The research was particularly timely given the fact that a record number of inheritance disputes are reaching the High Courts.
