Putting your affairs in order

One of the consequences of Covid-19 has been a huge spike in public demand for creating Wills.

The surge is not only from those working on the front line, or the elderly, but also from people who are finding they have more time to focus on their personal affairs.

However the logistics of signing a Will have become a little more complicated due to shielding issues.

You might think it is all too difficult now and I shall wait until lockdown is over in a few weeks. However lockdown will not be truly over until a vaccine is found, which could be many months. Are you prepared to wait that long?

So don’t prevaricate and start thinking about writing or reviewing your Will today.
