Our team of expert will and probate solicitors understand that for many people making a will can be an emotional step to take. We know from experience that there is more to making a will than simply putting your instructions into a legal document, there are often family matters to discuss and decisions to be made such as who will be the guardians for your children. Therefore, you may need to instruct solicitors specialising in wills and trusts.
If you already have a will, it is important to keep it up to date if your situation changes so that you can be sure your wishes and instructions are both clear and current. Failure to keep your will up to date can lead to disputes. If you wish to speak to a solicitor who specialises in contesting wills then please contact our contentious probate team of solicitors here.
We recommend that wills make provision for the possibility of you losing mental capacity. You can put in place a lasting power of attorney which appoints someone to make decisions about your health and welfare should you lose capacity. Alternatively, if there is no-one who you feel you can appoint to make such delicate decisions, it is possible to make a “living will”.
If you are looking to make a will for someone who cannot look after their own financial affairs due to mental incapacity, we can apply to the Court of Protection for a statutory will to be made on behalf of the incapacitated client.
