Honey Legal are doing £10 simple Wills for Children in Need, this is cheaper than Wowcher! Plus the money goes to Children in Need.

Be careful.. Executorship fee of 1.95% of the gross estate for acting as your Executor so might want to think about that.

Also only legal in England and Wales from what I can see.

The concise definition of 'charity' I saw once was...'Poor people in rich countries giving to rich people in poor countries'.

personally I only give to local hedgehog charities where all the money is used to help them keep going, the people who run them put in huge amounts of their own money, as well as all their spare time, and are very grateful for even a few tins of food for the hogs. Why people support charities where the CEO makes hundreds of thousands I don't know...

I've seen that meme on facebook too. Problem is it's not true. The 90 million the Daily Mail mentioned (for it came from a Daily Mail article) is money that has been allocated to projects, but is released periodically to ensure it is spent as intended. It is not money hoarded - the money covers all the grants that Children in Need have agreed, so if they stopped fundraising they can cover all projects they have agreed to fund for the period they have agreed to.

how is this a deal? Its just grim.

Great deal

Great deal for a great cause

I work in estate planning and a lot of places do free wills..... personally I’d make sure any will is written by a solicitor so it’s insured and regulated.
Also look out for things in t&cs with unwanted executors

Thanks, keep meaning to sort this out, hopefully this will be the kick up the backside I need to get one sorted. Not grim to me.

I’ve read up about this company just now and they have Solicitors and are regulated from what I can see. Seems legit to me 😊

Still a good deal even if you don’t believe in the cause, I suppose this way you’re getting something without benefitting the rich like psmith1958 said

Quite normal for a charity to hold reserves of 3-4 years annual revenue to be able to fund long-term commitments, and not just give out all the money upfront, and the reserves are invested not stashed.

WARNING

Solicitors and banks often provide low cost or free 'will services' the catch is they will recommend you appoint them as a co-executor to the will. They will make it sound like a very good idea to have a legal expert to oversee the execution of the will. They take a fee however and it is typically a % of your estate, the fees typically run into thousands where there is a house to be sold.

What do they do in return for this fee, they appoint a member of the family as the executor and sign the paperwork, easy money for them and less for your family. So unless you anticipate that your family will squabble over the contents of the will do not let them appoint themselves. Far better to put in the will itself that if all parties can not agree to the terms of the will then they appoint an independent arbitrator or solicitor that they all agree on.

Why are you so against this? Just wondering because it’s for a good cause and if you use it, you don’t have to appoint them as executors, you can appoint anybody, if you don’t like the % then don’t appoint them, simples

You’re welcome to your opinion

Over £4000 for a will writing (average)
is this Hotukdeals or Hotukcharity

November they do free wills and you pay what you like the money goes to charity should I stay away from them to?

I saw a free will service for over 60's

It completely depends on who provides them, as discussed above it’s best to get it written by a professional company such as these guys or a solicitor for peace of mind but sometimes companies partake in ‘free Wills month’ which can be any month depending on who provides it, this is normally in exchange for a contribution to charity. If you have simple wishes, this deal would be great for you, anything more complicated it’s best to give them a call 😊

I'm sure "M"ovember do too

I hate this charity. Its very hypocritical and I am not sure why people fund it.

bbc.co.uk/new…024

they literally invested most of the money raised in stuff they are trying to save children from. They use 10% of any money raised per annum to actually help, the rest is invested. As per my previous point, they literally were investing in arms, which is causing there to be orphans and children in need in the first place.

Apologies for the rant. For me, I will never support this charity.


wrong charity. I'll save my rant for another time
