Funding a legal case can be a worry, which is why we have developed a range of funding options for inheritance dispute cases.
One of our most popular funding options is No Win – No Fee.
We offer two types of No Win - No Fee inheritance dispute funding arrangements:
1. A Conditional Fee Agreement, or CFA; and
2. A Damages Based Agreement, or DBA.
Not all inheritance cases are suitable for No Win – No Fee funding, but we are always happy to consider potential CFA and DBA claims under our FREE CASE ASSESSMENT service.
If we accept your inheritance case on a No Win – No Fee basis then we will not make a charge for the work we do if you lose your claim. If you win the case then we are enitled to receive payment. In the case of a CFA you pay the legal costs, together with a success fee. We will seek recovery of your legal costs from the opponent or the estate, but the success fee itself is not recoverable.
You may already have legal expenses inurance that will pay your legal fees and will will be happy to review your insurance arrangements to ascertain whether you have cover. If you do then No Win - No Fee inheritance dispute funding is unlikely to be required.
Legal expenses insurance may also cover you for any costs order made against you. If you don't already have this insurance and would like to be covered agaisnt an 'adverse costs order' then we can usually obtain insurance cover on a case-by-case basis.
In cases where No Win - No Fee inheritance dispute funding is not immediately available (for instance where further evidence needs to be obtained before the case can be definitively assessed) then we are always happy to reconsider the case at a later date and switch to No Win - No Fee funding if appropriate.
We are happy to discuss No Win - No Fee inheritance dispute funding on a free of charge basis. Call our free legal helpline with details of your case and will assess whether we are able to deal with your cases on a No Win - No Fee basis.
Another popular funding option is our deferred fees scheme. This can be used where you know that you will eventually be receiving money from an estate, but require your legal costs to be funded in the meantime.
