Two clients of mine were due to marry in April and now cannot . Theirs is one of hundreds, possibly thousands, of weddings which have been cancelled in the interests of public health. And there may well be a few more who want urgently to
marry, perhaps because one of them is gravely ill. While the Ministry of Justice is considering measures to facilitate will-making, perhaps this could also be considered?
I have some clients in a similar position who are devastated at the circumstances they find themselves in. They were looking to me for an solution which I cannot give them! I am not sure that there is any answer or anything that the MOJ can do to assist without creating more problems than it will solve. In my case should either party die their home will have to be sold to pay the IHT liability.
