Q: I already have a Will and just want to make an amendment – can I still do this during Make a Will month?
A: Yes, just contact a participating solicitor and inform them that you have a Will written and would like to add a codicil.
It’s a good idea to update your Will from time to time as your circumstances or your wishes may change.
Q: Are there an unlimited number of Wills available?
A: There are only a limited number of free Wills offered during Make a Will Month and these are written on a first come, first served basis. In order to ensure that you are able to benefit from the campaign, we recommend contacting a solicitor as early as possible.
If you miss out on a free Will on this occasion, you can still make use of Nelsons online discount, or call Ellis Keay 0115 962 7905 to find out more about other options available to you.
Q: What if my Will is complicated?
A: During Make a Will Month, solicitor’s fees are waived for simple Wills. If your Will is deemed to be complex, for example if it involves tax affairs or specialist legal advice, a fee may be charged for the additional work. Your solicitor will always make this clear to you in advance.
If you’re unsure about your Will, please do contact one of our solicitors for further advice.
Q: Do I have to tell you if I leave a gift to Nottingham Hospitals Charity?
A: You don’t have to tell us if you decide to leave a gift to us, and your solicitor will not disclose any details of your Will. However, if you would like to let us know about a gift in your Will, you can use the contact form available to download from this page or call us on 0115 962 7905. We would love to have the chance to say ‘thank you’ for your incredible kindness.
