Electronic Wills

Old woman working on laptop computer at homeUp to 40% of adults die each year without a Will. There are various reasons for this, but one main reason is thought to be a direct result of people simply being put off by outdated laws, and the costs involved in making a will. Under these circumstances, it may appear easier for an individual to simply avoid the subject and not make a Will. Unfortunately, this means that if an individual dies without a will, the estate will be distributed under outdated Intestacy laws, under which there is no guarantee that the estate will be distributed in accordance with the deceased’s wishes .The Law Commission has branded the current system “outdated” and is currently considering proposals on how Electronic Wills could reflect the modern age in which we live.
