Construction of Wills

Once a grant of probate of a Will has been made (court order that verifies and validates the last Will of a deceased) the court has power to clarify the intentions of a will maker having regard to the words used in a Will.

This may happen in a situation where the Will was prepared by a solicitor or whether it is made by will maker’s own hand.

There are various technical rules to be applied in the area of Will construction, needless to say, the court will be very cautious in interfering with the words used by a will maker.
