Storing your Will

Keeping your Will and Other Documents Safe and Valid

Once your Will is signed and witnessed, that is not the end of the story. It is essential that your Will is stored in a safe place.

Any of the following events can result in your Will being invalidated:-

  • If it is lost, it is presumed that you revoked it by destroying it;
  • If it is destroyed by flood or fire, and not re-made, it is presumed to have been revoked;
  • If it is scribbled on or damaged – even if you spill coffee on it! -it is presumed that you have revoked it by defacement;
  • If there are marks on it indicating that another document was at some time stapled or paper-clipped to it, it is presumed that you intended to change your will by incorporating the contents of another document.

We can help you keep your Will undamaged and accessible, by storing your Will and associated documents in a secure, fire-proof facility.

We give you a copy of the Will and associated documents to keep with your personal papers, together with written instructions as to how your will can be retrieved, so that you and your executors or attorneys can access the documents at any time.

To retrieve your documents, all you have to do is call us, and we will arrange for the Will and other documents to be delivered to you within one working day.

Our storage service is included with our Traditional Wills, Family Trust Wills and our Estate Plans.

"I am a retired divorcee with a complicated family situation. Allowing my estate to be distributed in line with to the intestacy rules when I am gone would not have been a fair reflection of my wishes, so I knew it was vital that I make a will. I wanted to ensure that particular members of my family were provided for. I also have a child who is self-employed, and I was worried about providing for her in case her business failed and her inheritance was seized by the Insolvency Service. Will Written have created an estate plan for me that places my assets into a trust when I am gone, so that the trustees can manage my assets and keep them in the family."
