In these unprecedented times, businesses are having to adapt the way they work. At Lester Aldridge, we are open for business and able to assist our clients – existing clients and new clients. We are fortunate to have the IT capabilities to work from home and continue to offer the same high level of service to our clients.
The only difference is that we can no longer offer face to face meetings. Instead, our Will solicitors are able to “meet” with our clients via Skype, Zoom or Whatsapp! If someone does not have internet access then we will look for other solutions, but always ensure that everyone involved can remain safe.
More than ever, people are giving their Wills thought and turning to homemade Wills or online Wills in the circumstances. Please bear in mind that there is no real substitution for obtaining legal advice and having a professionally prepared Will.
Whilst there is a cost associated with this, our Will solicitors are able to advise you on any issues that there may be, given your personal circumstances or level and nature of your assets. We can advise you on the feasibility of your intentions and provide you with tax efficient and effective options for providing for your loved ones. Our private client solicitors are able to ensure that all matters have been considered and addressed to avoid problems that homemade Wills do not consider.
There are also strict requirements for a valid Will. Although homemade and online Will packages come with some guidance, they cannot ensure that the wording gives effect to your wishes and that the Will is valid.
At Lester Aldridge, we can take the uncertainty out of the equation. We know the right questions to ask, the advice to give and we have the expertise to prepare a Will that is suitable for your needs ultimately, does what you want it to do.
The members of our team that can assist with Will advice and preparation, are all very experienced and full members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners. We are also able to help with Lasting Powers of Attorney, tax and estate planning and trust and estate administration.
