Why do I need a Will?

  • To ensure your loved ones are supported and any family circumstances, such as births, marriages and divorces, are considered as you wish.
  • To give direction to your executors so they know where to take your belongings.
  • To make your wishes for your funeral arrangements known.
  • To leave a gift to Rowcroft, or another charity of your choice.

What if I don’t have a Will?

If you die without a Will, the law determines who inherits your property, possessions and savings. This means your wishes may not be met and family members, friends or chosen charities may not receive a gift as you had wished.

It is important to write a Will if you would like to offer specific gifts to specific people. You are able to update your Will as often as you like by making a Codicil. This will allow you to change your mind about leaving a gift to Rowcroft at any time.

How to make a Will?

You can make a Will at any time and we recommend you consult a solicitor to make sure that all the legal formalities are covered and that your Will is valid.
