Statutory Wills

Making a will is important for all of us, to make sure our wishes are carried out when we die. When you make a Will you must have a clear understanding of what your wishes are and what your will says.

If a person lacks sufficient mental capacity to make a will, a statutory Will can be made on their behalf. A statutory Will is approved by the Court of Protection which makes sure the terms of the will are made in the best interests of the person who lacks mental capacity. Contact our team of specialists today.

Who can make a statutory will?

If you are acting as a Deputy on behalf of someone who lacks capacity, a statutory will is one of the things you may be asked to arrange.

Or if you are expecting to receive an inheritance from someone who cannot make their own will, you may be able to apply to the Court of Protection to write a statutory will for them. To do this, medical evidence will be necessary to show that person lacks capacity.
