Individuals who have lost mental capacity, due to an illness, sudden accident or other factors, may not have had an opportunity to make a Will. Unfortunately in these circumstances it is too late to do so by conventional means.
That said, an application can still be made direct to the Court of Protection for a ‘Statutory Will’ to be put in place. In these circumstances a Judge can authorise the arrangement on behalf of the individual concerned.
Securing a Statutory Will can be a complicated process and OGR Stock Denton is available to advise clients on what is required.
