Elderly people who used the services of a solicitor’s firm in Cricklewood and Willesden are being urged to check their Wills and documents are safe.

Sue Jeffreys, a former secretary at Owen & Co Solicitors, is concerned people do not know that the Furse Sanders Solicitors firm has closed after becoming insolvent.

In 2010, the Devon firm took over Owen & Co Solicitors in Willesden, changing the name to Ross Owen Solicitors.

It moved the office to Cricklewood Broadway in 2012 and re-named it Furse Sanders Solicitors.

The practice went into administration and was forced to close in September following intervention by the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority (SRA).

Sue said: “Now that Furse Sanders’ offices are closed, my concern is only for former clients, as it is very important for them to know the whereabouts of their Wills, deeds and documents.”
