Your Will is an important document and needs to be stored securely.
But how do you keep your Will safe, and still get access to it when you need it? You may need to make changes to your Will; for example, to add a new child or grandchild, or if you inherit a sum of money.
Whatever happens, it's always a good idea to review your Will every few years, so your Will needs to be available immediately.
You can store your Will at home - but you risk it being lost or stolen, and it may not remain completely confidential. Storing your Will with a local solicitor or bank could be the answer, but this can be inconvenient and, if you move out of the area, it can be difficult for your executors to find.
But Lawpack 's National Will Storage Service offers you a simple solution, keeping your Will safe at all times with no time limit.
Secure Will storage
Your Will stored securely... returned promptly
Lawpack's National Will Storage Service uses a secure facility designed to store your Will safely, so that it can be easily retrieved and despatched to you within two working days when you need it.
Safe, secure and accessible
Safe and secure Will storage is at the heart of Lawpack's Will Storage Service, but there are many other benefits:
Your Will will be given its own ID number, known only to you and your executor (with your consent). We make rigorous checks to ensure that nobody else can access it during your lifetime, and we guarantee never to open your sealed Will envelope.
Free Will forms and updates
When you want to review your Will, let us know and we'll send it back to you with a new Will form and instructions on filling it in. We'll also send you a bulletin on recent changes to the law that may affect your situation; for example, changes to Inheritance Tax levels.
Keeping executors informed
With your consent, we'll tell your first-named executor where you are storing your Will and make sure that only they can retrieve it after your death.
We can tell your chosen charities of bequests or legacies included in your Will. Charities appreciate this service.
