March 2020 sees the return of Free Wills Month. This event brings together a group of well-respected charities to offer members of the public aged 55 and over the opportunity to have their simple Wills written or updated free of charge by using participating solicitors in selected locations around England, Wales and Scotland.
Wills are an essential part of any financial plan, as they dictate how you wish for your assets to be divided upon your passing.
They are increasingly important if you have dependents who rely on you financially, or if you wish to leave assets to those outside your immediate family. A Will can also be a good way to limit the burden of Inheritance Tax that may be left after you’re gone.
An up to date Will written by a solicitor ensures your wishes are respected. It also avoids difficult decisions and legal complications for your loved ones. Free Wills Month allows you to provide for family and friends and leave a gift to your chosen charities too.
To take part in Free Wills Month please visit https://freewillsmonth.org.uk to register. You will then get access to the details of your local participating law firms.
