Ilott v Mitson Supreme Court verdict

March 15, 2017

We are pleased by the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Ilott v Mitson which provides welcome reassurance – save in specific and limited circumstances – that donors are free to benefit whom they wish in their will and that those final wishes will be respected. 

This ruling has brought clarity after years of confusion and concern for many in the charity and legal sectors. 

Donors can now be more confident that having an up-to-date and professionally written will means their final wishes will be honoured, and our members can continue to fulfil these wishes and ensure every charitable legacy gift achieves its greatest potential.
