As I am sat here, at home, pondering the meaning of the Universe and trying to remember what the world looked like pre-Coronavirus (ah, halcyon days), I am moved to comment on our fascination with loo rolls.
I understand that the reason we started panic buying loo rolls has something to do with the fact they come in large packets. Brilliant. Of course it only takes a few hoarders to force the rest of us to take action and the slope only gets slipperier from there!
I am one of the lucky ones. My wife plans by default to feed an army and we are currently well disposed to deal with a barren period on the shelves. Nevertheless my thoughts are with those poor souls who are having to resort to the one sheet method.
Whatever category you find yourself in, it is important to note that you can't write your Will on loo roll. Actually, the title is a bit of a lie, you absolutely can, but you almost certainly shouldn't. I don't urge panic in any situation, but it is not unreasonable to want to get your ducks in a row and we have noticed an upsurge in new instructions in the past couple of weeks.
We are fully set up to take instructions by phone or teleconference, so if you are minded to put your affairs in order (Covid-19 inspired or otherwise!) please do not hesitate to contact any member of our Wealth Management Team for further advice.
For fans of jurisprudence, the most obscure material on which someone has written a Will (and that was found acceptable by a Court) was an egg shell. In that case, the material was held fine, although the Will itself was invalid. Please don't write your Will on an egg shell either.
