We are facing unprecedented and uncharted territory in the world and news is constantly changing. Covid-19 is not something any of us saw coming and has taken us all unawares.

Silks remains open for business and taking instructions, and we are looking at alternatives such as Zoom, Skype and other platforms to carry out interviews and deal with our clients during the current crisis we face.

We would encourage anyone wanting to make a will in these unprecedented times not to use unqualified people! Look for professional qualifications of Law Society Private Client membership, STEP membership and SFE membership.

It really is worth taking proper advice and having a professionally drafted will which carries full insurance and protection especially when people are particularly vulnerable.”
