Have you made a will – get involved with the Law Commission’s consultation

Have you made a will?

 It’s thought that 40% of people who die every year haven’t made a will. That’s more than 200,000 people who don’t get to choose where their lifetime’s possessions end up.

Now in a new consultation launched today the Law Commission wants to know why. They think Victorian-era  laws and formal rule could be putting people off, but want to hear people’s experiences of making a will, or the reason they’ve not got round to it.

Come to the Law Commission’s free event and tell them about the problems you’ve encountered making a will or if you haven’t made one, tell them why not: 3.30pm to 5pm, Thursday 2 November 2017, Eastbourne Blind Society, 124-142 Longstone Rd, Eastbourne, BN22 8DA. Please confirm your place by 26 October: Damien.bruneau@lawcommission.gsi.gov.uk or 020 3334 3969.

The Law Commission would also like to hear from you in response to their consultation paper. Find out more: http://www.lawcom.gov.uk/project/wills/
