What should I do? – Legacies (a quick guide)
A legacy is a gift of money, property or possessions left in your will. If you decide to give to a charity, the gift is currently tax-free, so everything you leave will go towards the work of Havant and East Hants Mind.
Making or revising a will is important and we recommend you seek independent advice from of a solicitor or bank trust company.
There are 4 different types of legacies:
- A pecuniary legacy is a gift of a fixed sum of money. You can protect this type of gift from inflation by linking it to the Retail Price Index.
- A specific gift is a tangible item such as a house, piece of jewellery, silver teapot or car.
- A residuary legacy is a gift of the whole or a share of whatever remains of your estate after all other gifts have been distributed and any debts paid off.
- You can also ask people who care for you to make donations in your memory
