Will Storage

There is no formal requirement as to where a Will should be stored but obviously it should be kept in a safe place, such as a bank or with an advisor, that is easily accessible.

It is not advisable to keep a Will in a safety deposit box because after your death your executors will not be able to open that box without obtaining a court order.

You should always make a copy of your Will (which should clearly be marked “copy” on all pages) and make a note on the copy where the original is kept.

Finally, tell your executors where you have stored your Will. We provide storage facility for a minimal annual charge.In addition, if you decide to store you will with us, we will provide you with a FREE update of the will.
