Information for executors & solicitors

If you are administering a Will that includes a gift to the RSPB, you may find the information below useful.

Our Legacy Administration Team, based at The Lodge in Sandy, deals with all gifts in Wills left to the RSPB (including those for specific reserves and/or projects).  Members of the Legacy Administration Team are the only people authorised by our Trustees to give valid receipt and discharge to executors.

We accept payment of legacies by way of electronic transfers and/or cheques.

If you would like to make payment of a legacy by way of an electronic transfer, please contact us by e-mail at legacies@rspb.org.uk and provide the following information:

  • Full name and last known address of the deceased so that we may update our Supporter records
  • The executor’s name and contact details.

We will then provide you with our bank details and the reference to be used so your payment can be matched to the above information.
