What is a Statutory Will? Why would someone need one? What are the benefits? Sameena Munir in our Private Client team explains.
We all understand the importance of making a Will but what happens if you need to make a Will or change an existing Will but no longer have the capacity to do so?
An application can be made the Court of Protection for a Statutory Will to be made in that person's best interests.
Our team of Court of Protection and deputyship lawyers are experts in the area of Statutory Wills. They assist with a range of other services too including appointing and supporting deputies; selling, buying or adapting properties; and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
