Free Will Writing with Engleharts Solicitors

Free will writing service for charity donation in Sussex

We have teamed up with Engleharts Solicitors to offer friends and supporters a free will writing service during October 2019.

Writing a will is one of the most important things we can do to protect our loved ones but it is often left low down on our to-do list. Our free will campaign gives you the opportunity to get a will written by one of Sussex’s leading solicitors, for free in return for making a donation to the Sussex Cancer Fund.

During our ‘Free Will Writing Month’ campaign you will receive a professional consultation and a new, or updated Will, from one of the team at Englehart’s solicitors free of charge. Our free Will service is for anyone aged 55, or over and covers the cost of a simple Will. In return, we ask that you make a small donation to Sussex Cancer Fund. The campaign runs until 31st October 2019 & spaces are limited and are a first come first served basis.

Making a Will and keeping it up to date is one of the most important things you can do, ensuring your wishes are known and your money and possessions go to who you choose. Yet many of us just simply never get around to doing it.

How our free will writing service works:

1. You get in touch directly with Engleharts Solicitors and arrange an appointment during the campaign period.

2.  At the initial meeting, you explain what you want by telling the solicitor what assets you have, and who you want to benefit from your Will. The solicitor will tell you if it can be done as a “basic” or standard Will. If what you need requires specialist advice, the solicitor will tell you what can be included under the scheme and give you a separate price for any additional work. All solicitors reserve the right to charge you a fee if your Will is not considered “basic”.

3. The solicitor will tell you how much the firm would normally have charged for preparing the Will. The average cost of this service is £250-300 plus VAT. You will be given a Sussex Cancer Fund donation form to complete and asked to make a donation that reflects the time and effort that the solicitor has given. We would like to suggest a minimum donation of £50 for a basic Will and £100 for mirror Wills, but clearly there is no limit as to how much you wish to donate.

4. There is no obligation whatsoever to include a gift to Sussex Cancer Fund in your Will. The solicitors will, however, be able to advise you about the tax advantages of gifts to charities in Wills. We hope, if it’s possible for you to do so, you may consider us.
