Making Your Will During the COVID19 Crisis

We understand that during this uncertain time many clients will wish to prepare their Wills and make sure their affairs are in order.

At The Sethi Partnership Solicitors, the welfare of our clients is of paramount concern. As is ensuring that the Wills we prepare in this time are executed in accordance with the requirements set out in the Wills Act 1837. Additionally, we will continue to ensure that your Will is not susceptible to being challenged in the court.

The safeguards that we usually adhere are becoming increasingly difficult to comply with in this unprecedented time. This is because at The Sethi Partnership Solicitors, we are following government advice on self-isolation and social distancing.

How can we help?

  • On each matter we are instructed on we will assess the likely risks involved in the Will you wish to prepare including how you wish to distribute your estate.
  • Given that delaying drafting a Will is clearly a risky option we are offering clients the option of meeting via telephone or video conferencing in order to prepare their Will.
  • As we are unable to invite you to our office to execute your Will at this time we will then send you detailed instructions on how the Will should be executed.
  • We are also taking every measure possible to brief our clients on how they can ensure they comply with the Wills Act 1837 when executing their Will.
  • S9 of the Wills Act has particular requirements and we can explain these to you in detail, with reference to case law, on the safest possible way you can execute your Wills.
