  • Can a third party write a will for ill person

    If someone has become disabled and can no longer use their hands and wants to write a will. If they dictate this to two witnesses will the will be valid

    The witnesses stand to benefit nothing from the will but are lifelong friends of the will owner

    Thanks in advance

    The situation you describe has massive scope for disaster - creating a will that is invalid or giving rise to bitter disputes.

    This person should engage a solicitor to make sure that this is done properly, in a way that will be recognised by the Probate Registry when the time comes.
    Lawyer (solicitor) - retired from practice, now in academia. I do not advise by PM.
