A simple guide to making your will
Step 1 - Find your Solicitor or Will Writer
Getting a meeting with someone is the first step. Here are details of solicitors that are involved in our Make a Will Month.
Step 2 - Write your will
Before your appointment, you should prepare a few things:
Choose an executor. Person(s) to carry out the wishes of your will.
Put together a list of assets you own. Such as the value of your house, car, savings, jewellery, stocks and shares and what you owe (the outstanding balance of your mortgage, overdrafts, bank loans and other debts).
List anything you want to leave, together with the full names and addresses of who you want to benefit. These can be:
Specific gifts or items
A residuary gift.
A gift that can be made once all debts have been paid and any fixed gifts given, often a portion of your estate, divided into percentages.
A pecuniary gift. This is a specific amount of money.
Consider your donation to Willen Hospice. There are various ways you can remember Willen Hospice in your will.
A Residuary Gift - Leave part of your estate to Willen e.g. 1% of the residue of your estate
Pecuniary Gift - A fixed gift of money e.g. £1,000
A Specific Gift - Leave something specific to the Hospice, like furniture or jewellery
