Last Will and testament

Making a Will

Making a Will is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. And it’s a lot more affordable and straightforward than you may think.

You may want a Will that ensures your assets and possessions are left to those you love when you are no longer here. Or you might have a favourite charity that you would like to leave a gift to.

Remember A Charity has teamed up with The Co-operative Legal Services, a national provider of Wills and other legal services, trusted for their strong ethical beliefs and socially responsible working. They can help you to decide which Will is right for you and help you to amend an existing one.

We always recommend speaking to your local professional advisor if you’re considering making or updating your Will.

Why consider making a Will?

  • Reduce the burden on the loved ones you leave behind
  • Protect your assets and help reduce the impact that inheritance tax and residential care fees can have on your estate; protecting your assets for loved ones.
  • Ensure all your assets are dealt with correctly, with debts paid and items going to the people you wish to receive them.

The right Will for you

There are a number of different options you can consider when making a Will:

Write it yourself

While it’s possible to write your own Will, you need to be careful that you don’t miss out something vital, as leaving out certain details could make your Will invalid. We strongly recommended you have it checked by a legal professional.

If you’re considering having yours written online, remember that a website may not cater to your needs and provide the same tailored document that a qualified professional will.

Use a local solicitor or Will Writer
