In the case of Wilson v Lassman, the High Court has upheld the validity of a will that was witnessed on the bonnet of the testator’s car.
The background to this case was a disgruntled son who had been disinherited by his father’s will. He wanted to bring a claim out of time under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, but latterly amended his claim to raise the issue of whether the will was valid at all under s9 Wills Act 1837.
