Make a Will

During ‘Make a Will’ Month this May, some of our local solicitors will be waiving their fees for a Simple Will written or updated in return for you making a donation to St. Michael’s Hospice.

We spend most of our lives planning ahead, yet we find it difficult to think about planning for what might happen at the end of our life, or even after our death and life-altering moments can happen when you least expect them.

That’s why some of our local solicitors will be waiving their fees to create or update a Simple Will, single or mirror (Joint Will) in return for a donation to St. Michael’s Hospice as part of our ‘Make a Will’ Month this May. You’ll gain the peace of mind and knowledge that your wishes will be carried out as you want them to be, all whilst supporting your local hospice to provide the vital care needed for those with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

What is a Simple Will?

A Simple Will is a legal document that gives instructions as to what you would like to happen when you pass away. In a Simple Will your assets are given to the intended recipients when you pass/when they reach the required age as set out in your Will. A Will would not be classed as a Simple Will if it involves discretionary or life interest trusts. Anything outside of a Simple Will may incur an additional charge by the Solicitor. Please call to confirm with them if you are unsure.

Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your wishes are carried out and that your loved ones are cared for in the future. It also makes it easier for your friends and family to sort everything out after your death. Without a Will, this process can be even more stressful and could take a lot longer.

Register your interest now using the form below and we’ll send you an email with next steps, including a full list of participating solicitors.

What kind of Will can I make?

During our ‘Making a Will’ month, this May, you will be able to write a simple Single or Mirror Will (Joint) with any of the participating firms mentioned. If you are unsure if your Will is simple, please call the Solicitors directly to discuss this with them.

How long does it take to write a Will?

The appointment can take up to an hour, and the process to complete the written Will could take between 4-6 weeks to finalise.

How much will it cost to write my Will?

We are suggesting a donation of £200 for a Single Will, and £350 for a Mirror Will. Wills can normally vary in cost with each Solicitor from £600 for a Single Will to £850 for a Mirror (Joint) Will.
