Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney during the COVID-19 restrictions

Date Added 02.04.20

Over recent weeks, Tollers has taken robust measures to protect our staff whilst allowing them to continue to provide our clients with professional advice from their homes. Our staff remain contactable at all times by telephone or by e-mail.

Face to face appointments with our clients have been suspended until further notice unless they are absolutely critical and even then they are only able to proceed provided that none of the prospective participants are at risk or displaying any symptoms.

In order to continue to service our clients during this difficult time, Tollers’ Trusts and Estates Team have put together a faster process to provide Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney with a professional and efficient turnaround.

All you need is the ability to communicate with us via video link, whether that be using WhatsApp, Skype or Zoom, and a third party (friend or neighbour) who can witness your signature.

Making a Will with Tollers during the COVID-19 restrictions is easy: –

  1. Contact our offices by phone or e-mail to arrange an initial discussion.
  2. Provide your instructions to one of our experts by video call. This will include full names and addresses for those you wish to include in your Will.
  3. A draft Will is then sent out to you for approval with our terms of business.
  4. Once approved, a Will can be sent to you with instructions for completion at home. Guidance can be provided by phone or video call if required during your Will signing and you will need at least two independent people to witness you signing.
  5. Once completed, the Wills can be returned to Tollers for safe storage and a copy of the documents will be provided for your records.

All of our Wills are prepared for fixed fees from £225 for a single Will and £360 for mirror Wills. All Tollers Wills include free registration on the Certainty National Wills Register and ongoing storage of your original Will with Tollers.

Our Lasting Power of Attorney process is equally stress-free: –

  1. Contact our offices by phone or e-mail to arrange an initial discussion.
  2. Provide your instructions to one of our experts by video call. This will include full names, dates of birth and addresses for those you wish to act as Attorneys.
  3. Terms of business will be sent to you for signature and return.
  4. Your Lasting Powers of Attorney will be sent to you with instructions for completion at home. You will need to arrange a third party witness and another video call with us to complete the documents.
  5. Once signed, your documents can be returned to Tollers for further action and registration.

Our Lasting Powers of Attorney are prepared for fixed fees, depending on the number of documents you wish to make. A member of the team will be happy to provide you with a quote based on your requirements.
