BSG Solicitors in Lancaster have partnered with Cancer Research UK to offer free single or mirror wills for anyone over the age of 55.

Emma Edwards, Solicitor at BSG said: “Cancer Research UK is a charity close to our hearts at BSG and we’re very happy to have joined the scheme.

“We believe every adult should have a written will to enable them to take control of what happens to their estate after their death.

“In the UK less than half of the adult population have a written will. For unmarried couples the situation can be more complex as there is no such thing as a ‘common law’ marriage, so your assets won’t necessarily pass to your cohabitee.”

The free Wills scheme covers the cost of a basic will for anyone over the age of 55 and for a mirror will with a partner just one person must be aged over 55.
