30th April 2020
Our front door may be closed to visitors but our Wills and Probate Team are very much open for business at this time. We have helped many clients update or write new wills in the past few weeks, observing hygiene rules and social distancing at a time when many people are worried about their general health and fearful of catching the virus.
If you have never written a will, now is a good time to put that right to make administering your estate much easier for the people you leave behind. You may think everything would pass to your spouse or children or partner, but you may be mistaken. This, and writing a homemade or “online” will could be an expensive mistake in the long run.
We are here to take your instructions over the telephone or by email and discuss any particular areas of concern. We are sending out draft wills prepared by our home based solicitors for approval before our office based staff are able to assist in witnessing the wills to make sure they comply with the legal formalities.
