Private client practitioners are having to cope with an increase in people wanting to make wills at a time when face to face contact is impossible because of the Covid pandemic. Many of the issues are issues that are always with us but are simply presenting in a more extreme form.

This webinar will consider:

  • Professional guidance
  • Retainer issues?
  • Difficulties in taking instructions
  • What to do if concerned about capacity or undue influence
  • Executing wills when clients are self-isolating
  • Current guidance on executing and registering LPAs

There is, of course, no perfect solution but this webinar will help you assess the risks involved in acting (and not acting).

Learning Objectives

By the end of the session the delegates will:

  • be aware of the options for taking instructions and getting wills executed with as little risk as possible;
  • be able to adapt your office practice and procedures appropriately
