How to Make an Application for a Statutory Will - Procedure & Problem Areas
The Court of Protection is often just seen as managing the appointment of deputies, however, it is so much more than that.
It has numerous powers to make decisions in cases where a person lacks capacity, further extended by the 2017 regulations.
The Court of Protection can make decisions to alter the intestacy rules and put in place a will for a person lacking capacity, known as a statutory will.
Delays are caused when the process is not followed correctly, often increasing costs which cannot be recovered on assessment by the SCCO.
