Did the Testator have sufficient mental capacity? – did they:

  • know what a Will was?
  • know (roughly) what their assets were?
  • know who they might be expected to benefit?
  • have a "sound disposing mind" free from disease which caused them to make a gift, that they would not otherwise have made?
  • and, if the Testator, was ill or elderly, did the Will-writer follow the 'Golden if Tactless Rule'?
