Disputes heard in the High Court over the validity of Wills have jumped from 97 cases in 2013, to 164 in 2015. Many of the judgements and decisions made were pivotal on whether or not a testator had the necessary mental capacity at the time their Will was written and signed.
Debilitating conditions such as Dementia are currently on the rise. At this moment there are over 850,000 people living in the United Kingdom right now with it and scarily, this figure is set to soar to 1 million people by 2025. This and unfortunately other illnesses and conditions can affect a person’s memory, their ability to understand and reason. These are all key attributes we look for when creating your Will.
