We offer a free will through two different charities.

Alzheimer’s Society Free Simple Will to Remember Scheme

At GloverPriest, we understand that dementia is a complex condition, and having family and friends that are affected by it can be both upsetting and challenging. 

Alzheimer’s Society is doing great work to help people living with dementia the support they need to improve their lives. 

This is why we are supporting Alzheimer’s Society to help raise awareness and vital funds through gifts in Wills. 

 

What is a Will to Remember?

A Will to Remember helps you plan for the future, whether you are directly affected by dementia or you know someone who is.

By making a Will to Remember through Alzheimer’s Society, you are able to get a free simple Will drafted that protects your assets and allows you the choice of donating to Alzheimer’s Society if this is your wish. 

If you would like to include a gift in your Will for Alzheimer’s Society, we are able to ensure that your Will is drafted accurately for this.

How does Will to Remember work?

You can make your Will to Remember at any time in the year and at any time in your life, there is no age limit. 

We find that many people who use the scheme like to leave a gift to Alzheimer’s Society in their Will, but there is no obligation to do so. 

To be eligible for a Will to Remember the following simple steps should be taken:

 

Step 1: You are referred to us by Alzheimer’s Society to claim your free simple Will through the Will to Remember scheme.

 

Step 2: We will arrange an appointment with you to discuss your needs and requirements for your Will.

 

Step 3: We will prepare your simple Will at no cost to you. If your Will is more complex, we will advise you of any potential additional fees before our work begins.

If you would like to make a Will to Remember we are here to help. Do not hesitate to contact us today for more information on this free simple Will service. 

Call us today on 0121 794 5814. Alternatively, you can go to our contact page and we will get back to you.

What is Alzheimer’s Society?

Alzheimer's Society is a charity that provides support to everyone affected by dementia. They invest in groundbreaking research into ways of treating and caring for those with dementia and give guidance and support to help people.

For more information about Alzheimer's Society and the work they carry out, please visit their website.

What is a simple Will?

A simple Will is one that covers assets of up to £325,000 for individuals and £650,000 for married couples. Assets over these amounts may incur Inheritance Tax and involves further planning. 

Similarly, if you believe there may be potential arguments in future regarding who should inherit from your estate, this will be more of a complex matter. 

A complex Will may be applicable when you have more complicated assets such as owning a business, having children from a previous relationship, or where you want to set up a trust.  

What does a gift mean in a Will?

When you make a Will, you can leave a gift which is an item or amount of money that you want to give someone or something. 

How do you leave money to charity in your Will?

If you decide to leave a gift in your Will for a charity, you must be careful that you have the correct details for the charity to make sure it reaches them. This will include their registration details, full legal name, and address. 

There are two ways in which you can leave a gift in your Will to a charity, a cash gift and a share of your estate. Your “estate” refers to all the assets that a person leaves including property, savings, or investments. 

A special clause will need to be included in your Will to outline the details of the gift and to make sure it is legally binding.

What can I leave to charity in my Will?

You can leave a fixed amount of money, an item, a percentage of what you own, or what has been left after other gifts have been made.

Why should I make a Will?

Your Will outlines what will happen to your property, money, and possessions when you die. Making a Will means that your intentions are carried out and potential disputes are often avoided. 

Taking the steps to protect your assets for future generations to come will give you peace of mind that your possessions are being inherited by those you love according to your wishes.

Do I need to use a solicitor for my Will?

You are not required to instruct a solicitor to draft your Will, however, in some cases, it is a good idea to use one.

If your Will is likely to be complicated in that it might be contested, money will be left in a trust, you have property abroad or want to include a gift, instructing a solicitor is advised. A solicitor is able to legally protect your assets according to your wishes.

Whoever you name as the Executor of your Will when you die will also have more protection against people who might contest the Will if it is drafted by a solicitor. 

The Will should be drafted in a way that ensures that your wishes are followed through and that your beneficiaries receive what you have left them. 

If you do not have a Will at all or you do not construct it properly, this can leave your loved ones open to contentious probate claims which can be stressful and time-consuming for them.
