    No, Im afraid your mum has to make her own decision about a will - no-one (not even a deputy) can make that decision for for her. Im afraid that as she has lost capacity she can no longer make a will.

    Gosh, I didnt know about that.
    Thank you @Kevinl

    The other alternative is for them to die intestate, which means that as they dont have a will their assets are divided up according to strict legal oder

    The court will only allow a statuary will when the intestacy rules are, in its opinion, inadequate.

    Maybe somebody unrelated who had lived with the decease for many decades and perhaps now caring for them during a long term illness.
