A huge number of wills are never found when needed.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A WILL CANNOT BE FOUND

When a will cannot be found the executors can not be appointed and cannot carry out their duties and the wishes of the person making the will cannot be carried out.

Once you have made your will and signed it, the most important thing to do is to have it registered and stored in safe document storage, with Executor retrieval system.

With time people do forget where they have put their own will – and people who have been told where the will is going to be kept also forget. It may even have been moved. Time passes, memory fades, and this happens all too often.

Typically you hear people say they know that the person made a will but they cannot now remember when it was, or who did it, or what happened to it.

In these circumstances there are rules to be followed. A spouse is limited to how much he or she can receive, and unmarried partners get nothing. Guardians of children can not take up their duties, and the government decides who are to be the guardians. Probate is likely to be lengthy and costly creating more stress for those left behind.

THE SOLUTION

Our secure will storage service is in Devon, where your will is registered and the executors details are recorded

The legal document is safely stored in its own sealed water resistant envelope in our steel fireproof and waterproof cabinets. It is also insured.


YOUR EXECUTORS ALWAYS KNOW WHERE THE WILL IS KEPT.

Your executors are notified where your legal documents are being kept, and receive retrieval cards which can only be used to retrieve them on production of a death certificate, this also means that your will contents are kept private as well as secure.

You, however, can retrieve documents or add documents anytime. A small administration cost applies to cover time and postage.


SECURE DOCUMENT STORAGE + EXECUTOR RETRIEVAL GIVES COMPLETE PEACE OF MIND FOR A VERY SMALL ANNUAL COST
