Inheriting Trouble

Each episode focuses on a different estate and examines how the last wishes of the deceased are actually handled once they have passed. After family members are notified and the will is read things are rarely simple. A will is rarely as straightforward as it seems when large sums are involved and relatives, business partners, and lawyers get involved in some of the most contentious cases on record.
