Lockdown? Don't let that put you off!

Despite the Lockdown we continue to be busy with new enquires for Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPAs). People are recognising the importance of taking control of their affairs and planning for the future.

Our Private Client Nicola Steadman shares her thoughts:


Although the message is to #StayAtHome, don’t let this put you off! There are many ways that we can ensure that your wishes are put in place in a safe, efficient and effective way. We can take instructions in writing or email, by telephone or video call. Email will be used where available to ensure draft documents can be sent and amended quickly.

When it comes to signing your Will or LPA, we will explain to you how you can arrange your own witnesses who can sign the documents from a safe distance. We can also see clients ourselves in certain situations, ensuring that all appropriate safety measures are in place.

As people find themselves stuck indoors, LPAs are even more important than ever, enabling family members to undertake banking, deal with financial institutions etc. If you’ve found dealing with your day to day life administration hard during lockdown, now is the time to think about preparing an LPA. They are not just for when a person lacks capacity.

Don’t let lockdown stop you from dealing with these important issues. We can help you. After all, where there’s a will there’s a way!
