In the current climate many people across the UK are keen to get their legal affairs in order. However, due to social-distancing rules many people are also housebound and unable to see a solicitor.
Times of adversity call for legal professionals to be more creative and flexible in order for clients to be able to access the legal advice and services that they need. We are pleased to be able to continue to draft wills remotely, working with individuals and families over phone, email and video calls to get their wishes onto paper.

If you are one of the 50% of the population without a will then you may be prompted by recent world events to put some planning in place for your family.
To get you started you will need to consider the following basics:
Our team are on hand and continue to work during these difficult times as we understand that many of our clients and local families will be keen to get their affairs in order.
To get started we can email you a copy of our comprehensive wills questionnaire. This will help you get all your information, assets and intentions onto paper and is a good starting point for drafting your wills. Alternatively, we can set up a video call or telephone call to discuss your Will.
