Gifts in Wills: FAQ

If you decide to leave a gift to Reverse Rett, it’s really straightforward to include this in your Will. All you have to do is give your solicitor our registered address and charity numbers and your solicitor will do the rest.

Address: Reverse Rett, Suite 2B, Paragon House, Seymour Grove, Manchester, M16 0LN

Registered charity numbers: 1136809 (England and Wales) and SC046735 (Scotland).

If you prefer, you can take the following wording to your solicitor. They will make sure your Will is valid and that your wishes are followed.

A share of your estate

My bequest to Reverse Rett of the residual estate (or a proportion of) – a residuary or percentage legacy “Subject to the payment of my debts, funeral and testamentary expenses, I give the whole (residuary) or ______% of my estate not otherwise disposed of by this my Will to Reverse Rett Registered charity numbers 1136809 (England and Wales) and SC046735 (Scotland)) of Suite 2B, Paragon House Seynour Grove, Manchester, M16 0LN, for the general purposes of Reverse Rettand I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.”

A specific sum of money

My bequest to Reverse Rett for a set sum – a pecuniary legacy “I give free of tax to Reverse Rett (Registered charity numbers 1136809 (England and Wales) and SC046735 (Scotland)) of Suite 2B, Paragon House, Seymour Grove, Manchester, M16, the sum of £______ for the general purposes of Reverse Rett and I declare that the receipt of their Treasurer or other proper officer shall be a full and sufficient discharge.”

At the moment, if you leave a gift to Reverse Rett in your will it will not be included when valuing your estate for Inheritance Tax purposes. The value of your gift will be deducted from your estate before Inheritance Tax is applied.

However, Inheritance Tax rules can change so it’s always best to discuss your will and the type of gift you might like to leave with your solicitor.

There are three types of gift you can leave in your will:

• A share of your estate – This is a percentage of your estate after all other gifts and expenses have been paid. These gifts are very important to us as they usually maintain their value or increase over time. This also means you’re less likely to need to amend it in the future. Just a small percentage can transform lives for years to come.

• A specific sum – This is a gift of a set amount of money.

• A specific item – This could be something valuable such as an antique, painting, property or shares that we would sell.
If you already have a Will and simply wish to add a gift to Reverse Rett you can complete a codicil form and store it with your Will. A codicil is read alongside your Will and allows you to make changes to your Will, without having to rewrite it. Ask your solicitor for a codicil form.

A solicitor will help ensure that your will is valid and that your wishes will be met. However, you can choose to use a will writer or online will provider.

The cost of writing a will varies depending on how complicated it is. You can ask several solicitors what they charge before making your decision.

If you have already written a Will and wish simply to update it with a gift to charity, there should be no charge, but you should check this with your solicitor.

We understand that circumstances can change. You can change the content of your Will at any time. We will never ask you to tell us whether you have left Reverse Rett a gift in your Will, although we’re always very happy to hear from you, so we can say thank you.
