Sidney Ross writes for STEP’s TQR

4th Jan 2022

Article: Freedom to disinherit

Sidney Ross has written for STEP’s Trust Quarterly Review (TQR) on forced heirship rules and 1975 Act claims by adult children.

The article examines inheritance claims by adult children, identifying factors which significantly influence outcomes and questioning whether there has been any change in judicial attitudes since Ilott v Mitson [2018] AC 545. It explores whether a comparison between 1975 Act cases and grounds for disinheritance in civil law systems may provide useful guidance in distinguishing between deserving and undeserving claimants.

Sidney is the author of Inheritance Act Claims, published by Sweet & Maxwell.
