Making a Will

Posted By: on 19th March 2020 | Category: Wills, Will Drafting and Succession

Many of us are experiencing a time which is full of uncertainty. You may have friends and family which you care for in high risk groups and it has become clear that we all need to act in awareness of others and be mindful. It is difficult to see what the future brings.

Self-isolating or not, we believe everyone can put their time to good use. Things that you may not normally have the time to do, such as making a Will, should become a priority to those who feel they are at greater risk.

We urge you to ask yourself:

  • If you have a Will, is it up to date?
  • Does it represent what you would like it to?
  • Do you know its location?
  • If you do not have one, should you make one?

Even if you feel you do not have much to leave, it is wise to safeguard your family’s future for any eventuality. If you do not leave a Will your estate could be divided up according to the rules of intestacy; meaning the state will govern how your assets are distributed and to whom.

If you’re self-isolating, we would be happy to take instructions by email and/or over the phone.

We have much more information on making a Will via our Wills, Will Drafting and Succession page.

Alternatively, give our Associate Solicitor, Claire Carberry a call on 01273 322800 or email claire.carberry@coolebevisllp.com for further advice.
