Video wills 'may help avoid disputes'
Many consumers believe that by leaving a video will, they would be able to reduce the risk of family disputes over inheritances after their deaths.
This is according to research conducted by Remember A Charity, which found that 70 per cent of people polled were of this opinion.
The study also discovered that 63 per cent of respondents would like the opportunity to leave a video will in order to explain their choices to relatives and to provide them with the chance to send messages and advice from 'beyond the grave'.
Stephen George, chairman of the organisation, said: "This research highlights a growing desire to leave personal messages for loved ones to support their legally binding wills and to explain the decisions we make."
Remember A Charity was established in 2000 and currently has more than 140 members working for it to encourage people to consider donating money to good causes in their wills.
