Where there is a Will there is a Way

The current uncertainties and concerns over the outbreak of the COVID -19 Pandemic, has no doubt been a challenging time for you and your loved ones.

It is the priority of Olivers Legal Services to understand your concerns and thereby offer practical information about available options to use and protect your assets from the above threat.

Following the current recommendation from the Government for people to practice social distancing to decrease the risk of getting the virus infection, we would like to update you on the measures Oliver’s Legal Services have put in place for clients who wish to put in place relevant documents in respect of their estates.

We are able to offer online meetings using Skype, Zoom, Video call, Facebook Messenger or by telephone.

For your peace of mind, if you put in place a Will, you will be able to do the following:

  1. Choose who you want to be your children’s guardians (if your children are below 18 Years old), without the Court of Protection stepping in and costing large amounts in court fees.
  2. Choose who will be your named Executor and Trustee
  3. Donate money or property to family, friends and/or to a chosen charity or organisation in your Will.
  4. Identify a named person you want your estate to go to and not the Crown, as the estate may go to someone that you did not want to benefit from your estate


If you put in place a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) documents now for Finance and Property due to the Governments strict measures to self isolate, your chosen attorney will be able to make the following decisions on your behalf:

  1. Manage your bank account
  2. Make or sell investments
  3. Pay your bills
  4. Buy or sell your home should you need alternative accommodation in the future


Health and Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney documents can only be used if you do not have the capacity to manage your own affairs. They can be used to do the following:

  1. They can be used to chose the type of health care and medical treatment they would like you to receive including life – treatments.
