Can a person without capacity make a Will?
The law states that you must have mental capacity if you want to make a Will. You have to understand that you are making a Will, you have to understand the assets that you will be disposing of on death and also give consideration to any potential claims like the ones listed in this section of our website.
However, in certain circumstances, an application to Court can be made for a Will for a person who lacks capacity. This is called a Statutory Will.
We can also act for you if a Statutory Will has been applied for and you disagree with the proposed contents.
Ultimately, the Court will decide what is in the best interests of the person the Will is for.
Statutory Wills can be emotive, our empathetic solicitors can assist you every step of the way. Contact us today for a free, no obligation discussion.
