There are also strict rules about who can and cannot witness a will.
Lack of Knowledge and Approval
A person must have knowledge of, and approve of, the content of their will. They must know that they are signing a will, and approve of its contents.
It must be shown that the testator was not aware of the content of the will or that there were suspicious circumstances.
To prove that a person was unduly influenced, coerced or under duress when making a will you must show ‘actual undue influence’.
The evidence needed to prove undue influence must be of a high standard, to the extent that there is no other reasonable theory to explain the terms of the will.
You are able to contest a will if you believe it was forged or fraud has taken place.
