Video witnessing of Wills

Video witnessing of Wills

Traditionally, the only method of legally validating a Will was that two witnesses needed to be present when the will was signed.

Given the current Covid-19 pandemic this has caused a significant problem.

Did you know?

Legislation has recently been passed which comes into effect from September 2020 which will allow Wills to be witnessed by video.

This will assist particularly where people are either shielding or have health problems and may be more predisposed to contracting the virus.

We know from experience that people have been concerned and have been looking to make sure that their Wills are up-to-date and in place to ensure that should anything unforeseen happen, their affairs are catered for and in order.
