Wills & Probate | Increase of Wills During Covid-19

I have just found out some startling news… research conducted by IRN Research has revealed that only 4% of those surveyed cited the recent pandemic as the reason for them making a Will.


I am surprised by this as I thought that the figure would have been much higher. Don’t you?


I would have thought that the pandemic would have brought issues such as Wills to the front of everyone’s minds… especially whilst everyone is working at home with their personal paperwork in clear view, bugging them daily…


Research suggests that only 36% of people have a Will, which is quite shocking.


There are so many people who remain unprotected. Preparing a Will does not mean you are pulling forward the inevitable, it just means you have thought about protecting yourself and your loved ones.
