• There are 3 types of legacy: - the 'residue' of the estate is what is left after all of the bequests, taxes and debts hve been paid. You can give the entire residue or a share of it (e.g. 25%) to RBGE. - Pecuniary legacies specify an exact sum of money (e.g. £1,000). - a specific legacy relates to a particular item such as stocks, shares or property.
