Richard Kershaw comments on the problem of creating a valid Will during lockdown

Richard’s comments were originally published in Edward Fennell’s Legal Diary Blog, and can be found here

“A Will can fail for any number of reasons, the most obvious of which is that it hasn’t been executed properly; complying with the rules is difficult during lockdown but the potential risks of having an invalid Will are too great not to get this right, and could lead to intestacy, increased tax and significantly higher legal costs, especially if there is a dispute about a will’s validity. If in doubt take specialist legal advice.”
