Secure Will Storage

What is secure Will storage?

After completing a Will, it should be carefully stored. Ideally it should be kept somewhere safe, where no one can get unauthorised access to it and where your Executor will know how to retrieve it.

In conjunction with the Secure Will Company (Doncaster) and Kings Court Trust (Bath) we can store your original Wills, Lasting Power of Attorneys and HouseTitle Deeds. Even you haven’t made your Wills through Wetherby Wills, we can arrange secure will storage in the same way as we do for our clients.

Having you documents in a safe, theft proof, fire proof and bomb proof place gives you peace of mind. The originals can be sent to you or your Executors within a few days. You will need the original Wills when applying for Probate.

Why Store your Will Securely?

Everyone’s family and circumstances are different. If someone keeps their Wills at home they run the risk of fire, or theft or destruction of a Will, More importantly, a person who would be better off if there was no Will maybe the first to find it, and might destroy the Will.

Do you know where your original Will are kept, can you find it or if stored with Solicitors can they find it. Sometimes Solicitors merge businesses so it is important you know that they still have your documents stored safely. There is no additional cost for storing other items with your Wills, such as a Lasting Power of Attorney or House Title Deeds.

Once your documents are stored then you will receive a letter from Kings Court Trust with a unique reference number for each individual document.

Free Will updates

If you have had your Wills drafted by Wetherby Wills, and you store your Wills with Wetherby Wills, then this entitles you to rewrite your Will as many times as you like at no extra cost.

For example:  If you made your Wills and then married or divorced, moved address, wanted to make changes to the beneficiaries or changed Executors then you will be entitled to have a new Will prepared at no cost thus enabling you to keep you Will updated along life’s journey. The cost for storage is a small amount paid by standing order once a year.
