Your Will specifies how you’d like your estate (what you own – money, possessions and property) to be distributed after you die. If you don’t leave a Will, the law decides how your estate should be passed on so please do think about writing a Will today.
If you would like to work privately with a local solicitor to write a Will, we work with local solicitors based in East London and Greater London, who can help FREE OF CHARGE. If you are ready to write your Will please email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a Will referral.
Different partners offer appointments at their local East London office or have telephone, video or home appointments. If you specify your preference in your referral request we will be able to recommend you with the most appropriate solicitor.
You can also choose to attend a Will workshop which the Hospice hosts every 2 months where we take it in turns to invite our local partners in to meet our supporters and answer any questions.
You can make a basic will online and for FREE through our partners Farewill. You will have access to free legal support and will checking service every step of the way. This is available 7 days a week between 9am and 9pm, through live chat or telephone.
The cost of making or updating a simple or mirror will is covered but you may have to pay additional costs if your estate is more complex, for example if you have property abroad. To get started, you will need to a code to allow you to use the service for free. You can request a free will code via email. You can then get your free online will via the Farewill website.
We run regular will writing workshops here at the hospice, working with local solicitors who donate their expertise and time to help supporters make a will or update an existing will for free. They are information sessions covering all relevant topics for planning your future including wills, inheritance tax and lasing power of attorney.
We also host will clinics – FREE face to face appointments with the solicitors to get a basic or mirror Will written, reviewed and updated for free.
Upcoming workshop dates you can register for are:
- Thursday 23rd September 2021
- Thursday 25th November 2021
- Thursday 27th January 2022
- Thursday 31st March 2022
