Making a Will

Making a will can offer peace of mind, bring any outstanding affairs into order, offer potential inheritance tax benefits and provide a vital source of income from any legacies left to charity.

During April, partner solicitors donated their expertise and time to Cobalt. They wrote or updated straightforward Wills for you, in return for a voluntary donation to Cobalt. The suggested donation to Cobalt was £100 for a single Will, £150 for mirror Wills.

Simon Cook, Partner and Head of the Wills, probate and trusts team at Willans LLP said 'Making a Will is so important as it provides peace of mind that your estate will be distributed as you wish. Although there is absolutely no requirement to do so, you may choose to leave a gift to charity which can help reduce inheritance tax on your estate'.

Why making a will is so important - Willans LLP

If making a will has become a longstanding fixture on your to-do list, you're in good company; it is estimated that only 36% of people in the UK have made a will. Willans LLP explain the benefits of making a will and keeping it up to date.

Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today - Harrison Clark Rickerbys

Too many of us put off making a Will, either because death isn’t something we want to think about, or because we don’t know how best to divide our estate.

Failure to make a Will, however, can lead to anxiety and stress, at a time when our loved ones are already grieving.

Thank You
