I have been writing wills for clients using software for many years, mostly English though I live in Scotland. I was using software by Countrywide Legacy which offers the option to provide a Scots or English Domicile version. I was concerned when I entered info for a Scots client and the draft included the standard ‘STEP Provisions will apply’ clause. I queried this with them and was assured that this was appropriate. But to my knowledge, STEP Provisions are only fully appropriate in E&W and NI and I am not aware of any Scottish STEP provison.
I wonder what the forum members think? What is the implication of a Scotsman having an English will and vice versa
