Contentious probate

Novitas loans can cover the legal costs of contentious probate proceedings.

Novitas can provide loans to fund the legal costs of clients going through contentious probate proceedings, including claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975, (1975 Act Claims).

Fast, efficient lending

Our loans are set up as a facility for solicitors to draw down funds to pay legal bills, as and when your client needs to. For contentious probate cases, we’ll need Counsel's opinion before approving your client’s application (pro-forma available upon application).
