Write your will, support a charity: Gebbie & Wilson participates in Will Aid

At Gebbie & Wilson, we’re proud to participate in the Will Aid scheme. Will Aid encourages lawyers and solicitors to provide will writing services in return for a donation to Will Aid, which supports nine charities.

2013 is Will Aid’s 25th year and, in that time, over £13 million has been raised for the vital work of the Will Aid Charities all around the world, including right here in the UK. The nine charities are:

Without a will, the Law of Intestacy will cover your estate. However, this often doesn’t reflect how you would have divided your belongings, should you have written a will. It can also be more time consuming and costly for your loved ones in the event of your death.

Although it is legal to write your own will, it pays to instruct an expert wills solicitor. There are many criteria your will must adhere to to be legally binding, and the extra expense is worth it to know there will be no nasty surprises for your beneficiaries. Not only that, but our private client solicitors are also able to offer advice which can mitigate your inheritance tax liability, or advice on the more complicated clauses which can be inserted.

Will Aid allows you to look after your loved ones at the same time as supporting a charity, all while providing the peace of mind that comes with being prepared for the future. Get in touch with Gebbie & Wilson today to start writing your will. Call our solicitors on 01357 520082 or click here to make an online enquiry.
