If you haven’t got a will, then you probably ought to – see the Justice Gap advice guide. November is Will Aid week where some lawyers forgo their fees donating them instead to leading UK charities. Instead of paying your solicitor’s fee, you will be invited to make a donation to charity. Suggested minimum donation is £85 for a basic Will, £125 for a pair of basic mirror Wills and £40 for a codicil. Check out their website.
