Making Your Will at a Time of Crisis

Suddenly we all feel that much more vulnerable since the Coronavirus outbreak.  In crises like this, making or updating your will might suddenly seem like a good idea, after perhaps years of putting it off.  If you did make a will years ago but can’t remember where you filed it, you might now have time at home to find it.

There is online govenment advice about making a will and many people are having a go at doing their own wills online, especially as you can’t see a solicitor or will writer face to face at the moment under the present isolation restrictions.

However we are hearing from people who are struggling to fill out the online forms or are worried if they are making the right decisions. Your will is a legal document that determines where everything goes that you have worked so hard to acquire in your lifetime. So if you want help at this time it is still possible to get advice from a professional will-writer (just make sure they are IPW qualified) who can offer virtual meetings on Skype or Zoom.

You will then be able to get expert advice for what you are trying to achieve, so that you are able to provide clear instructions.

Bill Brown from Accord Legal Services is happy to answer any questions that you might have on 07900 188587 or He is currently offering Skype or telephone consultations instead of the normal home visits he normally does across West Berkshire.
