Scottish Referrals Network: The impacts of incapacity

Gary Burton and Sarah Lonie explored the topic of incapacity and how it impacts on Private Client and Court Practitioners. Both Gary and Sarah regularly deal with individuals who are incapable and their families looking to navigate the legal system.

They discussed what issues arise and the practical solutions that can be provided to assist clients.

The topics included:

  • Issues and considerations towards the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000
  • Guardianship/intervention applications and responsibilities
  • When powers and processes are required
  • Ascertaining capacity for instructions for Wills and Powers of Attorney
  • Planning for incapable beneficiaries, including Trusts and Wills
