The Government has announced that in September 2020 video witnessed wills are to be made legal. In a response to the pandemic, people will be able to sign wills remotely. In the middle of lock down large numbers of people had difficulty in finding witnesses to their wills. Those in isolation who were shielding were often unable to complete wills as a result.
The new law will make it possible to have wills witnessed via video enabling remote witnessing for the first time. These changes are backdated to 31 January 2020 to remove doubts over wills which have already been witnessed remotely by video.
