How can I make a Will during the Coronavirus “lockdown”?

  • Posted

Ashtons Legal is doing its best to be innovative and adaptable in meeting the needs of our clients.  We are able to offer virtual appointments using video conferencing via Microsoft Teams, FaceTime and Whatsapp. Or, if you do not have access to these facilities, a telephone meeting.

One of our lawyers will be able to answer your questions and give you the advice you need.

We will be able to draft your Will and send it to you by email together with an explanatory letter. Once you are happy with the terms of the Will we would arrange for it to be sent to you along with clear instructions on how to sign and witness the Will to ensure its validity. Under current rules, there have to be two independent adult witnesses to any Will and they cannot be beneficiaries or married to a beneficiary. These rules are currently being looked at by the Law Society and the Ministry of Justice and we will produce another update if and when anything changes on this point.

If you have any questions or would like to hear more about our Wills service, please email us and we will get back in touch with you on

Please note that we will need to comply with our normal regulatory requirements, such as proof of ID, and we will be able to talk this through with you.
