How to leave a Gift in Your Will
Making a Will is usually quick, simple and inexpensive. CURE would advise anyone making or updating a will to get in touch with a practicing Solicitor to help you do this.
Types of Will
There are different kinds of gift you can leave in your Will. The most common are:Residuary gift: A gift of the remainder of the estate after all other bequests have been made and debts cleared is called a residuary bequest.Pecuniary gift: A gift of a fixed sum of money in your Will is called a pecuniary bequest. The value of pecuniary legacies will decrease over time, as the cost of living increases.Specific gift: A particular named item left as a gift in your Will is known as a specific bequest – for example, a piece of jewellery.Contingent gift: A gift in your Will that depends upon the occurrence of an event which may or may not happen is known legally as a contingent bequest. An example is a bequest to a charity which applies only if other beneficiaries named in the Will die before the testator (person who made the Will).
