Legacies (a quick guide)

A legacy is a gift of money, property or possessions left in your will. If you decide to give to a charity, the gift is currently tax-free, so everything you leave will go towards the work of Plymouth & District Mind.

Making or revising a will is important and we recommend you seek independent advice from of a solicitor or bank trust company.

There are 4 different types of legacies:

  1. A pecuniary legacy is a gift of a fixed sum of money. You can protect this type of gift from inflation by linking it to the Retail Price Index.
  2. A specific gift is a tangible item such as a house, piece of jewellery, silver teapot or car.
  3. A residuary legacy is a gift of the whole or a share of whatever remains of your estate after all other gifts have been distributed and any debts paid off.
  4. You can also ask people who care for you to make donations in your memory.
