Winter is coming - the traditional 'colds and flu season'. But, as we all know, this year is somewhat different, due to the added ingredient of Covid-19 having been added to the mix. This has resulted in more people thinking about their own mortality, and the need to get their affairs in order.
This year has seen an increase in more people thinking about and dealing with their Wills. However, there's still a worrying statistic of over 30million of Brits not having a Will.
Making your Will is so much easier now, with the Government having helped out by allowing video witnessing for Wills until the end of January 2022. This means that witnesses can now observe people signing their Wills through a video call.
We as a firm continue to advise clients on their Wills and estate planning, and if you want some further advice, contact one of our team members, who will be happy to help.
