Why is a home visit from a Wills and Probate solicitor a good idea?

By 10th February 2022Home Visit, Wills

I pride myself as a uniquely placed and experienced solicitor; I am good with people and really enjoy getting to know my clients.

I see clients in their own homes (or workplaces) and have found over the years that this has brought significant benefits:-

  1. Clients are often most comfortable within their home environment and this helps them to feel in control of plans for their own future.
  2. Saves clients time, perhaps being able to fit in a meeting with me in their lunch hour or in the evening after their own personal or professional commitments.
  3. No childcare needed for those who have young children.
  4. Documents are easier for clients to locate during a meeting, if needed.
  5. Any clients with mobility or travel issues are catered for; no worrying about finding an accessible parking space!
  6. Privacy for clients is retained – you’re not going to bump in to an enquiring neighbour or friend in your own home!

I do of course understand that for some clients, a home visit isn’t appropriate. For example, if clients are going through a divorce or separation, then clearly sensitive subject matter may require discussion. We can meet at an alternative location or conduct a video call as required.

(Home visits were suspended at various times during the Covid-19 pandemic to maintain client and my own safety; clients are treated with respect and sensitivity at all times.)

Please let me know if you’d like to discuss preparing a Will, Lasting Power of Attorney or review your existing arrangements.

I regularly visit clients at home in the Odiham, Hook, Hartley Wintney and North Hampshire and Surrey area.
