In most cases, Hentys can act for you on a ‘no win-no fee’ agreement for our legal costs.
THIS MEANS THAT UNLESS WE GET A RESULT THAT BENEFITS YOU, YOU WILL NOT PAY OUR LEGAL COSTS.
When your claim for inheritance in a Will dispute is decided by the Court, the Court will usually order that the majority of your total legal expenses (ie. your professional fees and disbursements) should be paid by the Estate.
However, every court case carries risk, so no Claimant can be sure that the Estate will actually end up being required to pay the Claimant’s legal fees for them.
Even if the Court does award “costs” in your favour, you can only recover about 60% of your legal fees. The exact percentage depends upon the decision of the Court. This means that Claimants must be prepared to pay approximately 40% of their legal expenses from their own pocket of from the amount recovered, whether they win or lose.
However, our no win no-fee agreement, if you are eligible, limits the risk of being out of pocket for our legal fees, not including disbursements. We will inform you whether you qualify for our no win no-fee agreement.
