Statutory Wills

Where a person is incapable of making a new will because of a lack of capacity, the court of protection can authorise a will to be made on their behalf under the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

The court will invite the official solicitor to consider whether the proposed application for any will is made in the best interests of the incapacitated person and this must be drafted and considered carefully.

Our solicitors have in depth knowledge and experience of completing statutory wills for a range of reasons for brain injured children turning eighteen, elderly clients correcting existing wills or making new wills and in relation to applications that seek to redress the balance of proven financial abuse.

We will happily discuss the options open to your family in the best interests of your relative in a kind sensitive way.
