With the law changing on what happens to your estate if you die without a will, local solicitors are urging people to get their affairs in order.
They are offering their services on a voluntary basis to help people write their will this November during Will Aid’s Make a Will Month. Instead of charging a fee they are inviting the will-maker to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
The suggested donation is £95 for a single basic will and £150 for a pair of basic matching or “mirror” wills. All the money donated is shared between nine charities that carry out life changing work in the UK and around the world.
Participating solicitors include Sean Garner at Garners Law in Oxford Road, Stamford (01780 751196), Sarah Westwood at Buckles Solicitors in St Mary’s Hill, Stamford (01780 484570) and Carol Lee at Clarion House in Church Street, Oakham (01572 453101).
