The health of our clients and team are key, as we take precautions to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus. Subsequently the team are working remotely, the office remains closed to clients and we are observing the two metre rule.
As a law firm we have had more than a few questions regarding the effect Coronavirus and social distancing has on making a Will, particularly ...
Can I still make a Will?
Yes, we are are able to draft your Will, in these unusual times. Lawyers specialising in Wills are classed as key workers. We can deal with instructions remotely and although we will need to meet you will observe the social distancing rules.
Does a Will still need to be witnessed?
Yes, Wills must be dated,and signed by the person(s) making the Will and their signature witnessed by two people. This has to be done in person and cannot be witnessed over a video link, for example.
While a Will does need witnessed signatures to be valid, this doesn’t mean a witness needs to be in the same room as those signing. The witnesses can stand in another room, or look through a window to witness the signatures, so long as we can see the signature being performed and see the signature itself.
