Your Will is one of the most important documents you will ever make and, as the probate registry will ONLY accept originals it is critically important that your executors know exactly where they can find it.
You don’t need us to tell you that it’s an emotional and distressing time when a loved one dies, the added stress of frantically searching for a ‘lost’ Will is something that you really could do without.
A Will is a legal document and therefore, there are legal implications should it be misplaced. If only an older version can be found then that will be used, no matter how out of date it is. If NO WILL can be found then essentially you have died intestate (rules of intestacy here) – adding further stress and burden to those left to deal with your affairs.
All our Wills are scanned and stored in one place, at the National Will Archive allowing our clients peace of mind that all their legal documents are safe.
