As we have been confined to our homes, let’s all make use of this time and get our affairs in order. Wills and Enduring Powers of Attorney are not just for the older generation. Everyone needs to plan for the future and if these unprecedented times have taught us anything, it is to be prepared.

Despite Legal firms having reported a surge in enquiries since the COVID-19 outbreak, Royal London Insurance warns that barely 40% of adults have a will in place. The insurance firm said that, even among retirement-age adults, a third haven’t formally set out their legacies.

In our usual hectic worlds, planning for a Will often becomes a job for the future! I will do that next week… I will set up an appointment and get it sorted…… then life just gets in the way and before you know it, it’s a brand-new year and you still haven’t done it. Let’s all take the time now, when we are at home, to plan how to protect our families and loved ones and prepare our Wills.

We can take instructions via video calls, prepare a draft and email/post it to you, have it approved and organise witnessing in line with the social distancing restrictions.
