Solicitors offering discounted wills in charity driven scheme

Cwmbran based law firm Quality Solicitors Rubin Lewis O’Brien has teamed up with charity St David’s Hospice Care to encourage members of the local community to write a Will. The month long scheme will see the solicitors offer discounts on both single and mirror Will writing, with 50% of the remaining fee being donated to St David’s Hospice Care.

If an adult dies without a Will their estate is currently distributed under the Intestacy Rules.
Damian Lines of Rubin Lewis O’Brien explains: “The Intestacy Rules govern who will receive an inheritance where there is no will – and often, this will not be as expected or wanted by the family and loved ones left behind.A 2014 Law Society study found that 73% of 16-54 year olds don’t have a Will compared to 64% of those over the age of 55. These figures highlight the suggestion that often under 60s have not considered the need for a Will. The scheme will run from 14th October till 30 November.

“Making a Will can ensure you look after the people you care most about and allow you to decide who will inherit what assets. The passing of a loved one is a stressful and upsetting time, and with emotions running high families can have disagreements if there is not an authoritative Will in place. I would encourage everyone, regardless of age, to take advantage of this scheme.”
