Video Transcript

A will can be challenged if the testator was suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. This would be an indication that the testator did not have the requisite mental capacity to sign the will which requires that they understand who their relatives are, the nature and extent of their property, as well as the practical effect of the will. If they don’t understand these three things be it through dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, then the will can be challenged.
