A will made when there was a lack of capacity.

In 2007, Norma made a will that divided her estate equally between all of her nephews and nieces.  She did not have children of her own and wanted to benefit her extended family.

Unfortunately, Norma then developed early onset Alzheimer’s disease. She was eventually admitted to a specialist care home. Her condition was so bad that she did not even recognise most of her nephews and nieces.

Then one of the nephews arranged for Norma to change her will so that it only favoured him. We were able to show that this last will was invalid because Norma did not have the capacity to make it. We brought a case to ensure that the estate was shared between the nephews and nieces in the terms of the 2007 will. We acted on a No Win No Fee basis.
