Charity begins at home when making a will
Charity begins at home when making a will . Take care when you decide to make a will that the legal consequences are thought through and fair to all, particularly if you are tempted to accept offers from a charity to have the will drawn for you without charge or at a discount if you leave a legacy to them. Michael Brennan, a solicitor at Northwich solicitors Stonehwer Moss makes a will according to your requirements but will help you assess the effect of the will without preference to any advantages being gained by a charity or anyone else. A tempting offer from a charity or will writer may have costly consequences for your family. Michael says, ” I heard something on the radio today in which a large charity had caused a lot of upset to the family of a man who had accepted one of these offers and had left part of his residuary estate to the charity. The consequences for the family included having to buy family heirlooms back from the estate and the charity refusing an offer for sale of the house in order to get more money. Far better to see an impartial local solicitor and leave something to your favourite charity that does not cause unintentional distress to your family”.
Challenges to wills are likely to increase in the future and a professionally drawn will helps to gain some perspective on the effects of the provision you want to make, particularly if drawn by a local solicitor known to you and your family.
