Secure storage of Wills
Over 70% of those who die each year die intestate. This could mean that they did not make a Will, or perhaps they did, but no-one could find the original Will when it was needed. The solution is to have your Will stored in a secure place, safe against loss, damage, fire or theft, and retain a copy at home. Then register the documents onto the United Kingdom Professional Will Registry.
After all, should your original Will be destroyed in a fire which later took your life, it is equivalent to dying intestate and as if you had not put your affairs in order at all. Secure storage is, therefore, a valuable option for those that wish to protect the original of their Will and any other important legal documents, like property deeds.
At our Secure Storage facility it is backed up by a scan of the original signed Will for immediate recovery should the original be lost or damaged.
We believe this combination of registration with physical and digital storage provides you with the best possible peace of mind that your Will can be found when needed, and submitted to probate, protecting your beneficiaries and ensuring your last wishes are respected.
40% of valid Wills go missing so storing securely is essential.
