BLM explains how to write your will in lockdown to Your Money
The Coronavirus pandemic has changed our approach to most things, but has it changed the approach to will writing?
BLM's head of wills and estate planning James Beresford discussed this at length in this article in Your Money.
Commenting on how solicitors are now approaching this topic, James said:
"Even though we’re currently on lockdown, solicitors are set up to work from home and can take your instructions and provide guidance remotely, to make sure you’re still getting the best legal advice for your individual circumstances.
I don’t think many people realise that solicitors acting in the preparation of wills have also been identified as key workers, meaning we are still able to travel to and from the office, and, when necessary, visit clients for will signing (though maintaining social distancing rules)."
James also referred to BLM's offer of a free 30-minute virtual consultation to guide you through the estate planning process and provide advice on your protection needs.
