Brian Sloan, ‘Reversing Testamentary Dispositions in Favour of Informal Carers’

Abstract:
This chapter begins by considering the context of testamentary gifts for informal carers and the range of possible challenges to them. It then focuses on the appropriateness and the efficacy of the testamentary undue influence doctrine as a means of reversing testamentary dispositions in favour of informal carers. In particular, it considers the relevance of informal care to normative debates about whether a presumption of testamentary undue influence should be introduced to match the equivalent inter vivos presumption.
