How to make a Will or Lasting Power of Attorney during the Covid 19 Pandemic

The uncertainty created by the Covid 19 crisis has prompted many to think about planning for the future in terms of how they would take care of their families in the event that they were incapacitated or were to pass away.    We have found that many who are very eager to make a Lasting Power of Attorney or a Will may be apprehensive about attending a meeting at a solicitor’s office.

At Parkes Wilshire Johnson, we have embraced the challenges that the crisis has presented to us, and we have found new ways to take Will instructions and to execute them both remotely by telephone or video call, and in a safe, socially distanced environment.   Whilst we do need to see clients once during the process of instruction, the time spent in our offices is kept to a minimum and we are able to take ID and instructions whilst respecting the current regulations.

During this difficult period we are committed to fully supporting our clients in planning for their future. We can do this by reviewing their personal and/or family affairs and also considering issues such as any business and property assets and ownership.  We can also provide them with tax mitigation advice.

The situation is constantly changing and we are continuing to remain alert to our clients’ needs and to any changes that we need to make to our practice to ensure that we continue to provide a good service.  As the government responds to the changing situation with new laws and regulations we ensure that we keep abreast of any relevant changes in order that we can advise our clients accordingly.

If you would like to make plans for the future please give us a call on 020 8441 1556. We will be happy to discuss how you can protect your Estate giving you peace of mind, and how we can safely deliver this service to you.
