Letter of wishes

Letter of wishes

Help your executors follow your personal wishes

A letter of wishes is written to accompany your will. It's not legally binding, but can help to guide your executors and trustees in following your personal wishes. It's also useful for dealing with sentimental rather than valuable items, such as your furniture or treasured ornaments.

Rather than including detailed lists of possessions in your will, you can explain in your letter of wishes how you'd like them distributed. It's not advisable to use a letter of wishes to leave valuable objects, or if you want absolute certainty over who will inherit specific items – instead these should be gifted in your will itself.

You can have several different letters relating to different sections of your estate, left with various friends or family members, as well as master copies left with your will for safekeeping.
