Inheritance, Trusts and Will Disputes

Farming Inheritance Dispute


Succession planning in farming families can be complex and it can be difficult for the testator, who will often hold significant assets, to leave sufficient provision for family members whilst also ensuring the continuation of the farming business.

Dispute commonly arise where there has been diversification in the farming business which leads to an expectation that the family should benefit from any increased wealth as opposed to only those who are actively involved in the farming business.

Disputes may also arise as to whether the farming assets are owned by a partnership or the testator personally. This can give rise to disputes as to whether the assets should pass via a person’s Will.
