Citizens Advice Wills Week 23-27th September 2019
For one week only, in a bid to raise much needed funds for the local charity Citizens Advice, law practices across the South Hams have offered to waive their fees for writing Wills. Anyone taking up this offer can have a Will written for free but will be asked to make a donation to Citizens Advice South Hams of £100 for an individual or £150 for a joint will, a significant saving.
Local solicitors taking part in Wills Week are Bartons, Start Point Law and Beers,all based in Kingsbridge. Their contact details can be found on southhamscab.org.uk
Janie Moor, CEO of Citizens Advice South Hams says: “Everyone should make sure they have a legally valid and witnessed Will. If you die without making one, money, property and possessions will be allocated in a way defined by law and possibly not how you would have wished. Unmarried partners and partners who have not registered a civil partnership cannot inherit. Also any existing Will is no longer valid once you marry, so anyone wanting to leave assets to anyone other than their wife, husband or civil partner needs to make sure they have an up to date Will.
To make an appointment at one of the participating local practices, please contact them directly quoting "Citizens Advice Wills Week". The offer is only available to those who wish to make a simple Will which would typically include basic gifts of cash, property, assets, or family heirlooms to beneficiaries.
