Recorded Webinar: Statutory Wills: Capturing Intention When Capacity is Lost


4th April 2019

Duration:  approx. 1 hour

When a client no longer has capacity, assisting them to obtain a statutory will may be advisable.  This session looks at different circumstances in which a statutory will is appropriate and includes:

  • Evidence of expressions of testamentary wishes and prior wills – necessary evidence in granting a statutory will

  • Family provision claims and their relevance to statutory wills

  • Pre-emptive capacity – what are the tests and what difference does it make to the process?

  • Costs and statutory wills – do they always come out of the incapacitated ’s estate?

  • Is there a duty on practitioners to suggest the making of a statutory will?

  • Recent cases
