Home Made Will

The firm acted on behalf of an elderly lady who was resident in a care home and had unfortunately lost her mental capacity. Many years ago she had written out what was described as a "Will" on a piece of paper which was found by her relatives when they were clearing the house following her move to the care home. However, because the paper had been signed by her, but not witnessed by anyone, it was not a valid Will.

A member of our Court of Protection team made an application to the Court of Protection for the court to use its powers to make a statutory will, which would have the same legal effect as if the lady in question had made it herself when mentally capable. She had a wide family and the eventual Will involved assets in excess of £2m and 13 family members as beneficiaries, who were spread across the world. The court heard evidence about her relationships with family members, her care, her finances and her own likely needs before approving the terms of her statutory Will.
