Why make a Will?
A valid Will is the only way that you can be sure that your wishes are carried out after your death.
What happens if I don't make a Will?
If you die without a valid Will, you die 'intestate' and control of your estate is lost. All of your assests will be divided up according to the strict rules of intenstacy and tax may have to be paid. So by making a Will, you can esnure that your wishes for your estate will happen.
Leaving us a gift in your Will
We recommend that you see a solicitor to draw up your Will or to amend your exisitign Will. You will need to mention that you wish to leave a gift to HospiceCare and give our address and charity number to your solicitor.
Amending your existing Will
A Codicil - while many aspects of your Will may remain the same as you go through life, some things may change, prompting you to make changes. Rather than totally rewriting your Will, some people choose to write a Codicil.
A Codicil is an amedment to an exisiting Will and if this is something you wish to consider, we can supply you with one of our Codicil forms.
