There are various methods of challenging the validity of a Will, one of which is to show that undue influence had been exerted on the deceased.
This is by far the hardest method of setting aside a Will and that is reflected by the fact that there has only ever been 4 successful cases determined in the court.
There must have been ‘coercion’ rather than just ‘persuasion’, and that is a concept which most of my lay clients struggle with.
