Need a Will? Don't Delay Due To Lockdown.A Will is an extremely important document for every adult and means that should the worst happen, your final wishes will be granted as you expected. Having a Will means that you can ensure your loved ones are protected after your death and they avoid unnecessary expense and stress at a very difficult time.
Should you die intestate (without a Will), your Estate, no matter how small or large, will be divided and passed on according to the laws of intestacy. This may result in the people you wish to inherit not getting anything. For instance, a partner you live with may get less than an ex-spouse.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Rules
Currently, we cannot open our office as usual, due to the lockdown rules. However, this does not mean we are closed for business. It just means that we are working from home and can be contacted by email or telephone. We can even write or amend an official Will at this time so please don't put it off until after lockdown is over.
We are also authorised to complete the setting up of a Power of Attorney at this time. You will need access to a video conference calling system such as Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp. A Power of Attorney gives a trusted person authority over your finances or health and personal welfare. You can also request a combined Power of Attorney that covers both finances and health.
We are available to provide you with expert legal advice at this time so please do not hesitate to get in touch.
