Making or Updating a Will During Lockdown - How We Can Help

Senior solicitor Kelly Chandler, in our leading Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts team, explains how our team is here to help if you are looking to make or update a Will during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown situation.

The last few weeks have seen huge changes in the way we live our lives and this has caused many to think about preparing or reviewing a Will.

Colleagues in our specialist Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts team are successfully working remotely and continuing to take instructions from new and existing clients. We are here to help via email, telephone or video calls, in place of our usual face to face meetings.

We recommend that before your first virtual meeting with one of our experienced solicitors that you prepare as much as possible by:

  • putting together a list of your assets and finances;
  • considering those you wish to include in your Will and those you wish to oversee it (as executors);
  • thinking about what questions you would like to ask.

Following this meeting, we will draft your Will and send this out to you by email or post. Once approved and agreed, final copies can be sent to you for your signature. We will include detailed instructions about how to sign your Will at home. Once your Will is signed and returned to us, we will store it as part of our service.

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a meeting, please contact our Wills, Probate, Tax & Trusts team.

For further information or legal advice, please contact law@blandy.co.uk or call 0118 951 6800.
