Use Lawpack’s Will Storage Service today and have the peace of mind that your Will is being stored safely and securely.

Your Will is an important document and needs to be stored securely. After writing a Will, it’s vital that you keep your Will in a safe place.

But how do you keep your Will secure 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 for just £12 a year Lawpack's National Will Storage Service offers you a simple solution, keeping your Will safe and secure 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.

The benefits of Lawpack’s Will Storage

    • Details of how you can return your Will for revision and how often you should review your Will.
  1. If you requested us to do so, we will inform your first-named executor that your Will has been stored with us, along with the Will’s unique ID number. However, we will never return your Will to your executor unless the request is in writing and accompanied by a death certificate.

  • Direct debit mandate to be sent to us with your Will for simple payment of your annual subscription. 
  • Terms and conditions to be retained by you for reference at any time.

Included in our Will Storage application pack is a Will Retrieval Request form. Return this to us and we will dispatch your Will to you within two working days by first-class post. Included with this delivery will be:

  • A new Will form for you to complete, should you wish to revise your Will
  • Guidance on completing your new Will
  • A Will Storage envelope

You will need to retrieve your old Will and write a new Will.

Ask for your Will to be retrieved using our Will Retrieval Request form and your Will will be sent to you within two working days, along with a new Will form and guidance notes on writing your new Will. Once you have completed your new Will, you need to make sure that the Will is correctly witnessed and dated and make a copy. Destroy your old Will and return your new revised Will to us in your new Will Storage envelope.

As your name is one of the references we use to identify your stored Will, you need to let us know if you change your name. You can advise us of any changes to your name and address using the response card included in the Will Storage application pack.

If your name changes on marriage or remarriage, any previous Will is revoked and you should write a new Will.

If you ask us to do so, we will inform your first-named executor that your Will has been stored with us, along with the Will’s unique ID number.

We will send your executor a letter informing them that:

  • They have been appointed as the first-named executor in your Will.
  • It’s their responsibility, together with any other executors you have appointed in your Will, to apply for probate on your death and administer the estate.
  • If you should pass away, the executor will need to retrieve your Will from Lawpack by completing the Will Retrieval Request form (sent to them along with the letter) and post it to us, along with a certified copy of the death certificate.

Note that we will never return your Will to your executor unless the request is in writing and accompanied by a death certificate.

Your Will must be stored in a safe place, but you can do this at home, with a bank or solicitor, or with Lawpack's safe and secure Will Storage Service.

You can store your Will at home but you should consider the following points. 

  • A Will is an important document. It records your wishes. But a Will is only a piece of paper that can be easily lost, as sometimes happens when people move house, for example.
  • There is also the added question of security: do you want other members of your family to have access to your Will?

It’s possible to store your Will with a solicitor, but their Will storage charge can be high and it might be inconvenient if you move away from the area where you currently live. Your bank is another possibility for Will storage, but again there could be quite a hefty cost involved.

With Lawpack’s safe and secure Will Storage Service the cost is only £12.00 per year and you also receive free Will forms and guidance when you want to make changes to update your Will. Lawpack also maintains contact with your Will’s executor (with your consent).
