RUH Will Month returns this September
RUHX, the official NHS charity for the Royal United Hospitals Bath is working with six local solicitors and 100% of their fees for professional services is donated directly to support the hospital.
Today, more than 70 per cent of the UK population don’t have an up-to-date Will. That’s understandable, of course, the idea of writing a Will is a serious subject and one that requires much forward planning. But don't worry, you’re not alone.
In collaboration with RUH Will Month, solicitor firms across our catchment area are donating their fees to our hospital in a bid to raise awareness about the importance in planning for the future.
It is recommended everyone over the age of 18 write a Will to best protect them from the uncertainties of the future. From losing a loved one to owning a business, having children to becoming unwell, a Will can prove invaluable. It can also help minimise any inheritance tax potentially payable on your estate, as well as ensure your assets pass to your loved ones.
Sarah Loveless, Partner and Head of Private Clients at BLB Solicitors of Bath, Bradford on Avon and Trowbridge says: “Unmarried or cohabiting partners can be surprised to find that there is no such thing as a ‘common law spouse’. If you are not married your partner would receive nothing.
“A suitably drafted Will has other advantages, including making the process of administering your estate much easier. A Will allows you to choose the beneficiaries of your estate, potentially minimise inheritance tax and you can arrange the distribution of your estate to maximise the benefit of any applicable exemptions and reliefs.”
From losing a loved one to owning a business, having children to becoming unwell, a Will can prove invaluable. It can also help minimise any inheritance tax potentially payable on your estate, as well as ensure your assets pass to your loved ones.
With RUH’s Will Month as your companion, writing a will has never been more straightforward.
