Excluding someone from your will
Excluding someone from your will is not as straightforward as it seems as any will can be challenged. To exclude someone who would normally be expected to inherit from an estate has to be done properly, otherwise, a claim can be lodged with the courts using an Act of Parliament which could result in the courts deciding in the claimant's favour.
You cannot exclude someone by not naming them as a beneficiary. If you feel you want or need to do this then you need to understand the issues about taking this action and how your Will should be prepared.
You can review the relevant legislation by clicking here. However, we would always recommend discussing the issues around this in a full review of your Will needs.
If this is an issue that concerns you, then please get in touch.
