How to Leave a Gift in Your Will 

We recommend that you use a solicitor who will be able to advise you on the best way to proceed.

The cost of writing a Will is relatively inexpensive – around the same cost as having your annual car service.

A properly drafted Will gives you the peace of mind that the people and organisations you wish to benefit from in your life are the ones who do, it also means your loved ones have fewer decisions to make and minimises the potential for disputes and claims on your estate.

Types of Gifts

A Pecuniary Gift

Is a specific sum of money

A Specific Gift

Is an item such as a piece of jewellery or furniture.

Please ensure that you include the correct wording when specifying a gift in your Will.

A Residual Gift

You could leave some or all of what is left after you have provided for your loved ones

Updating an existing Will

In order to add a gift to Demelza Hospice Care for Children to an existing Will, you simply need to complete a form known as a ‘Codicil’ (which is a legal amendment).  Because many solicitors store Wills electronically, they may draw up a new Will but the cost will only be a fraction of the original charge.  Download a Codicil form here
