Will Storage

Store your will safely with Will Storage servicesWill storage services ensure that your will is kept somewhere safe and your executors will know how to access your will in the event of your death.  It is unwise to keep your will at home, for obvious reasons; It may be lost through fire or flood, vandalised by burglars or even worse, tampered with. The effect could be disastrous for surviving beneficiaries.

We specialise in the safe storage of Wills and offer an optional Aftercare Service for all our clients. This Aftercare service includes the following benefits:

  • Each Will is stored in our fireproof safe facility while you will receive a copy for your own records.
  • Each Will is indemnified for up to £2,000,000 – you will receive a Certificate of Deposit that confirms your individual reference number under our Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  • You are able to update your Will whenever an amendment is required without having to pay again for new Wills.
  • You are ensuring that your Will is kept somewhere safe and your executors will know how to access your will in the event of your death (we will write to them to advise them where your Will is being kept and how to access it following your death).
  • It also allows your Executors to ask our staff any questions or advice on the next stages after your death.

Why use a will storage service?
According to The Law Society, one in three people die without notifying their family of where their Will might be and so are considered to have died intestate. This means that the Government decides on how your estate is distributed and, in the event of there being no known beneficiaries, may keep your entire estate.
