Will Storage and Updates services

Why do I need Will Storage?

Choosing the right option to store your Will is essential as it must be kept in pristine condition. If damaged in any way, it can cause delays due to uncertainty and even be declared invalid by the courts.

Our fully insured Will Storage & Updates service keeps your important documents safe in state-of-the-art facilities and ensures your executors can easily access them when needed. We also provide unlimited updates so that your wishes always reflect your circumstances.

What’s included in our Will Storage & Updates package?

Whilst this option is free, it does come with risks. Keeping your Will at home can easily result in accidental damage, loss, or theft.

With our Will storage, your documents are fully insured and protected against all potential hazards.

With our Will Storage & Updates package, there are no limits to the updates you can make. We’ll update your documents as many times as you like.

A copy is not an acceptable alternative to the original Will, as the courts automatically assume the testator destroyed the original. To use a copy, the courts require signed consent from anyone who would inherit if there is no Will.

You then need affidavits from the original witnesses and a sworn legal statement from the executor confirming they are happy to apply for probate with the copy. The Executor must also provide lengthy details on how the original was lost and any steps they took to try and find it. Even with all of this, the courts may still reject the copy.

A valid original Will saves money and countless hours for your loved ones.

We don’t recommend requesting your original Will, and we usually send copies to avoid damage to the original. However, if you must see the original document, please get in touch with head office, and we will send it within fourteen days of receiving your request.

You can also view up-to-date scans of your documents in your digital vault.

Once we have completed your Will, we send your executors instructions on obtaining your Will, as well as guidance and resources to assist with their new role.

Yes, we can store important documents related to your Estate Planning, such as your house deeds, funeral plan information and article of wishes.

We use a leading global off-site storage provider, Iron Mountain, to store all client documentation. They adhere to the highest level of security standards, and all documents are stored in climate-controlled vaults.
