Leaving a legacy - making a will

Making a will

It is always advisable to have a will and it doesn't need to be an expensive exercise.

To ensure your will is valid and free from ambiguities we recommend that you seek legal advice. It's also a good idea to review your will from time to time, particularly following any major life events.

If you do not have a solicitor already you may want to find one using the search facility on the Law Society website or via the Lawyers' Christian Fellowship.

Once you have made provision for your loved ones please consider leaving a gift in your will to BRF. There are a number of different types of gifts you can make and your solicitor should be able to advise you about the options available. These options include:

  • A pecuniary legacy - a fixed amount of money
  • A specific legacy - a particular item or asset
  • A residuary legacy - a share or percentage of an estate

We've produced a form you can complete and give to your solicitor to indicate your wishes to begin the process of writing a will or amending an existing will.
