Will making during this period of self-isolation and social distancing.
It is still possible to make or amend your Will during this Covid-19 crisis and the Law Society has issued guidance to solicitors about how to assist clients who wish to do so.
Both the giving of instructions and the execution of your Will can be done remotely; that is, without leaving your home or visiting your solicitor’s office.
To make a valid Will, you must still comply wholly with the provisions of the Succession Act of 1965 and so it is highly advisable that you contact your solicitor to ensure that the process is in compliance.
Your solicitor has been given clear and detailed guidance on the protocols to be followed at this time of crisis to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their clients and anyone else involved.
Please consider leaving a gift in your will to a favourite charity to help them in the future.
