01/02/2012 - Jerry Rafferty's fianc?e claims against estate
 

The fiancée of the late singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty is bringing a claim on his estate, after being left out of his Will.

Rafferty left his £1.25 million estate to his daughter and granddaughter. Annual royalties for the hit song Baker Street are estimated to be worth £80,000.

Reports state that his fiancée Enzina Fuschini is now claiming on his estate under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. The Act gives to some cohabitees and dependants the right to claim on an estate, as can spouses, civil partners, some former spouses and civil partners, and children.

It’s essential to keep your Will up to date and to consider the possibility of claims with your legal advisor. This can help to avoid expensive court proceedings at a later date.
