How to leave a gift in your will
A valid will is the only guaranteed way for your wishes to be carried out and for your legacy to reach the Festival.
HOW TO MAKE A NEW WILL
Making a will isn’t complicated and needn’t be expensive:
First, work out how much you have to leave, including the total sum of your property, money and possessions, less any outstanding mortgages or loans.
Decide who you want to benefit from your will. For example, your family, friends and favourite charities or good causes. Next, appoint a professional adviser – usually a solicitor or other will writing professional. Then you need to choose executors to make sure your wishes are carried out. These can be professional advisers, friends or family members – or a combination to suit you.
Finally, keep your will safe and make sure your executors know where to find it. Keep the original copy with your solicitor in secure storage and retain a photocopy in your filing system.
HOW TO UPDATE AN EXISTING WILL
It is vital to review your will at intervals to ensure it still reflects your wishes and circumstances. For instance, if you move house or get married, or someone mentioned in your will dies, you may need to change it. Speak to your solicitor or will writing professional about the simplest way to revise your will quickly and cost-effectively.
