In view of the Covid 19 outbreak and the latest government action and official advice we are implementing new practices and procedures to continue to offer you our full range of services.
We must be mindful of official advice on self-isolation and social distancing, which are particularly important for elderly or ill persons and for our staff and all those we deal with.
We will be open for business as usual and will continue to offer our full range of services but will have to operate for the time being in this new but we hope still a personal way with you.
We can reach out to you by telephone, video conferencing and emails.
There are a number of areas that may be particularly important now and including preparing wills and where appropriate Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Whilst this is very sensitive, now is a very important time for people to make wills and have family consultations about what they wish to happen in the future and that their wishes are documented. Delaying having a will is a risky option for testators who are already ill and for all of us we are facing uncertainty.
We can give you the option of meeting via telephone, videoconferencing, email and usually we will work with you by a combination of these in order to prepare a will. We will give you as much time on the telephone as is necessary to give you general estate planning advice if required and to understand your requirements.
We will send you a draft will which you can then discuss with us and we can pass between us as many emails as required and/or discussions until your will is to your requirements.
We will send you the hard copy will by email and if the means are available in hard copy with detailed instructions on signing your will and having it attested by two witnesses.
We will ask you if it is possible to send the original signed copy back to us for checking and or scan a copy back to us to give you the satisfaction that you have a valid will.
Lasting Powers of Attorney may also be important for elderly, vulnerable or ill persons and now may be the time to put these in place. These are your life time instruments enabling your trusted to assist your financial and social needs.
We are here to support you.
