Types of Gifts in Wills

There are several types of gifts that you can leave in your will. We would advise that you explore all options with your solicitor or will writer. The types of gifts we most frequently receive are: 

Residuary Gift

Leaves all or part of your estate remaining after all other gifts have been made and expenses have been met. This is the safest way to ensure your legacy retains its value.

Pecuniary Gift

Leaves a specified, set sum of money. You can index link the amount to the Retail Price Index to avoid the problems associated with inflation.

Reversionary Gift

Allows you to leave assets to the College whilst giving a named person the benefit of the assets during his or her lifetime.

Your solicitor or will writer will be able to advise you further on these and other giving options.
