Most people realise the importance of making a Will. However, a Will can only be used if it can be found when required. It is important to store your original Will in a safe place. It’s a good idea to tell someone close to you where your Will is stored. There have been many instances where family and friends were aware that a Will existed but they were unable to locate it when it was required.
When a solicitor drafts your will for you, most will give you the option of holding your original Will in safe custody for you. This means that it is held in a fireproof safe in our office. You will receive a copy for your own records. This ensures your Will will not be misplaced and is able to be easily located when required.
