Frequently Asked Questions

How does the campaign work?

Members of the public aged 55 and over contact one of the firms of solicitors taking part in a Free Wills Month campaign during the designated month to request an appointment.

The solicitor will help to draw up a Will that accurately reflects the wishes of the individual or couple. Those taking up the offer are under no obligation to leave a gift to one of the Free Wills Month charities, however, we earnestly hope that many will see this as a chance to help their favourite cause.

Appointments are limited and are allocated on a first come first served basis. Once all available appointments are booked the campaign will close, this may be before the end of the campaigning month.

Are law firms offering remote appointments?

Law firms like many other businesses have had to adapt and follow the latest government advice. Each law firm will have an option or options available to make sure you feel safe and comfortable during the Will writing process - this is a combination of using meeting spaces large enough to socially distance, video calls and phone calls.

Speak to your chosen firm to find out about their particular offering.

Who is the campaign open to?

Free Wills Month is intended for individuals or couples aged 55 and over. In the case of couples making ‘mirror’ Wills, it is sufficient that one has reached the age of 55.

Do the charities get a copy of each Will?

No. The only documentation that is sent on to us is the confidential declaration form which asks questions such as where people heard of the campaign, their age and whether or not they have left a gift to one or more of the Free Wills Month charities.

What happens if a Will is complicated?

We have agreed that the campaign will cover the writing of ‘simple’ Wills. The solicitor will define whether your Will is simple based on your particular requirements, and if your Will is considered to be more complex, the solicitor may ask you to pay the balance yourself, however, most people only require simple Wills.
