Granting Powers of Attorney give your family members or close friends the right to assist you with your affairs if you fall ill and cannot deal with matters for yourself. If you lose capacity and have not appointed an Attorney to deal with matters on your behalf, your immediate family (who may not necessarily be the people you would have chosen) will have to apply to the Court for a Guardianship Order and this can be expensive and can take a long time to be granted.
We recommend that you appoint an Attorney while you still can!

Legal rights have been a feature of Scottish law for over 50 years. Legal rights apply whether you have made a Will (testate) or not (intestate). Legal rights act as a safeguard to protect members of a family from being disinherited.
Legal rights can be claimed by a surviving spouse, this also includes estranged or separated spouses unless there is a valid separation agreement in place. Civil partners and children (including adopted and illegitimate children and any issue of a child who has predeceased the deceased) also have legal rights on the estate. The right to claim is automatic, no application to the court is necessary.
The value of each person’s legal rights claim depends on which family members survive the deceased.
