Wills and Enduring Powers of Attorney

I provided some advice to a lady who is the enduring attorney for her mother. Her mother now has dementia.

She wanted to change her mother’s Will because the 2 named executors are now deceased.

Unfortunately there is no power under the EPA to alter the person’s Will and an application needs to be made to the Supreme Court to do so, costing a lot.

Luckily, it does not really matter in this case because the beneficiaries under the Will can apply for Letters of Administration with the Will annexed and deal with the estate as if they were the executors.
