All gifts in Wills are looked after by our Legacy Administration Team at our Head Office. They are the only people authorised to give a proper receipt and discharge to executors.

In order to administer the gifts left to us in a Will, there are some details we’ll need from you about the person who has left the gift:

  • the full name and last address of the deceased
  • the date of their death
  • a copy of the Will
  • any information about the reason for the legacy
  • details of the assets and liabilities if the gift is a share of an estate.
