From time to time we are asked to attend hospitals or care homes where someone’s death is imminent.
This might be where someone is dying and they have requested they want to make their will before their death.
We usually attend with a pro forma will which sets out the requirements under the Wills Act 1837. It also contains a large box where the will maker can say what they wish to do with their assets or possessions. Once this box is completed the will is signed by will maker in the presence of two witnesses.
We have been offering this emergency will service for a number of years.
We would encourage people if they are able to think about making a will at their leisure. Sometimes we realise this is not possible and offer our emergency will service to meet this need.
If a will needs to be done straight away as someone is dying contact us on 07943 160955 or firstname.lastname@example.org
