What can I leave in a legacy?

There are various ways to leave a gift. These include

  • Residuary Legacy – this is a proportion of your estate. It enables you to donate a percentage of your assets, or the reamining sum once you have provided for friends and family.
  • Percuniary legacy – this is where a simple specific sum of money is given. Note that the value of this amount may change over due to interest.
  • Assets or items – if there are specific things you own that you would like to leave, like furniture or land for example, this can be specified.
