Solicitors sign up to 'Will Week' offer
A NUMBER of law firms across County Wexford will next week people to visit them to make a will for a flat fee of just €50, as part of 'Best Will in the World' week, which runs from Monday October 22 to Friday October 26.
The campaign is being run following research that found only 34 per cent of Irish people have made a will. While this rises to 51 per cent for those aged between 45 and 64 years of age, and increases again to 82 per cent for people over the age of 65, those have not yet done so are advised there can be serious and long-running consequences if they pass away without making a will, and they are being encouraged to visit a local solicitor next week to leave a record of their wishes.
