Hello what is your question regarding this please?
I suggest that you write to the new solicitor and tell the new solicitor that the old solicitor (give the name) has already been to see your husband and has concluded that he does not have the mental capacity to write a new will and that should he decide to write a well on behalf of your husband, then you would contest the contents.
Similarly, he cannot grant a Lasting Power of Attorney and you should object to it being registered. https://www.gov.uk/object-registration/enduring-power
someone is going to have to apply to become a Deputy over your husband’s affairs and that process is going to take at least 6 months and if solicitors are dealing with it, it’s going to be a cost of about £2000.
.Can I clarify anything else for you? I’m happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
