Bequests get a double whammy

As well as property prices and lower value investment portfolios likely to drive the average bequest (legacy) value down, a member of the audience pointed out that with property taking longer to shift we are likely to see a delay in the realisation of bequests as well.

To mitigate against this of course, make sure you are getting more people put you in their will, and try and make suret they are leaving you legacies / bequests as 'residuary' gifts, or percentatge of estate.
