It’s important to ensure that the person who wants to make the will has sufficient mental capacity to do so. In Milnrow hospital visits for wills can be arranged before the person’s condition deteriorates to such a state that they are in coma, unconscious or does not have their full mental competence. This allows them to decide how they want their property to be distributed. Otherwise, the law will decide how their belongings are to be shared, rather than it being done according to their wishes. In many cases, people whom the deceased person would not have wanted to award anything to may inadvertently become beneficiaries, simply because they are legally entitled.
Hospital visits for wills in Milnrow ensure that a legal will is made. One of the benefits of making a will is that in case the deceased was unmarried but had a partner, the will can ensure that the partner is provided for. If the person is a divorcée, the will helps them decide whether to leave anything for their ex-spouse or not. Though the person may be able to write a will themselves, by hand, a solicitor can make sure that the legal formalities are followed to make the will valid. Contact us for more information.
