We always advise that you seek professional advice when writing your Will. It is easy to do and does not need to be expensive. In fact, MDUK offers a scheme that enables you to make your Will for free:
Our membership of the National Free Wills Network means that we can cover the costs for you to have a simple or mirror Will written by qualified solicitors within reasonable travelling distance of where you live.
Our partner, the National Free Wills Network, will then send you the names and addresses of at least two local firms of solicitors taking part in this scheme.
The solicitor draws up your Will and you don’t have to pay the bill.
Why does MDUK provide a Free Wills Service?
A lot of people include a gift in their Will to us when they are using this service. You don’t have to, but we do hope you’ll consider it. Gifts in Wills have played a very important part in funding progress in research and still fund one project in three.
