How to write a Will
A residue legacy or residue gift is a share of your estate, the value of which is determined once all cash gifts and gifts of specific items have been paid. An advantage of this kind of gift is that its value tends to change in line with the value of your estate.
A cash legacy is a cash sum of a fixed amount determined by you when you write your Will. It is also known as a pecuniary gift. This can be helpful for you as you can clearly see how much money is being left to charity. However, it will not reflect inflation, so the overall value to Demelza may be less.
Item specific legacy
You may wish to leave a specific item of value, for example jewellery, paintings, antiques, vehicles. Generally, we will arrange for such gifts to be valued and then sold to raise funds to support the care we provide.
If you already have a Will, you can add a gift to Demelza by getting your solicitor to prepare a supplement called a codicil. This is an additional document that explains, modifies, or revokes all or part of a Will. Take a look at our codicil form.
