I know from regular surveys that between 55-60% of the UK population have not made a Will.
Why do people not have a Will?
- Some people worry that “If I make a Will I will die the next day!” but speaking from experience, this is pretty unlikely to happen…
- Some people think Wills are too expensive as you could download a Will template for free these days. However, these Will templates are often not worth the paper they are written on. A single Will at Fidler & Pepper is very cost effective at £115 (plus VAT) or £160 (plus VAT) for a pair of Wills.
- People just don’t have the time as they are busy at work, you don’t have time for a meeting or you don’t want to think about dying when you are busy living
How can we help?
From experience I think that finding the time is a strong reason why people are putting making a Will, so we have added a new service where you can make a Will using Skype. I’m sure you may have heard of Skype which is free software and allows you to make free video calls.
We use Skype for Will appointments because it still allows us to have a face to face meeting about sensitive or confidential information that will be included in your Will. We understand that you will also want to see someone to understand how it all works and give you peace of mind.
How will it work for you?
So maybe you have half an hour in your lunch break or you’re lucky enough to start work at 10am? You could be a school teacher who would love an appointment at 4 or 4.30pm? When using Skype you don’t have to travel anywhere and the call and video appointment is completely free.
What you have to do next!
Just contact us to make an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01623 448 318. At your appointment time you simply log into Skype and we will help you through the process.
