An increasing number of people are now living to a great old age, but the risk of mental disorders also increases as grow older. We therefore have a particular focus on the legal and testamentary capacity of the relevant senior citizens in all legal transactions.

Legal questions regarding

Legal Capacity

Legal capacity is the ability to carry out legal transactions voluntarily and independently. The German Civil Code (Bürgerliche Gesetzbuch (BGB)) essentially regards all individuals as having legal capacity, and §§ 104 et seq. BGB only stipulates exceptions to such legal capacity, namely limited legal capacity and legal incapacity.

Individuals with legal incapacity, in addition to minors under the age of seven, are also persons who are also suffering from pathological disorders of mental activity that excludes the exercise of free declarations of intent and are not merely temporary in nature see § 104 BGB. Declarations of intent by persons with legal incapacity are null and void pursuant to § 105 BGB. Conditions that are considered pathological disorders of mental activity include dementia, mental impairment, delusions, hallucinations, alcohol abuse and mood disorders. The guardianship court will, where appropriate, appoint a guardian as a legal representative for those affected in accordance with § 1896 BGB.

Legal questions regarding

Testamentary Capacity

In accordance with § 2229 para 4 BGB, no person can draw up a will who is unable to understand the meaning of a declaration of intent issued by them and act independently on this insight owing to a pathological disorder of mental activity, mental deficiency or any impaired consciousness.

The existence of testamentary capacity is assumed in normal cases, and the non-existence of such is the exception and must therefore be proved by the person invoking the testator’s legal or testamentary incapacity. If in doubt, the probate court shall assume testamentary capacity.
