Lifetime storage offer

We had a call in October from a client (we will call her ‘Mrs Smith’ to protect her identity).

5 years ago Mrs Smith’s mother came to us to have her Will written, but she did not want us to store it for her as she wanted to store it herself. Mrs Smith was distraught when she called us because her mother had passed away but she could not locate the Will and distribution of her estate under the “rules of intestacy” is not what the deceased client (Mrs Smith’s mother) wanted.

This situation (and others like it) has led us to point out how vital it is to ensure your Will is stored safely and securely. Some of our clients may not want to pay an ongoing, monthly fee to us, so we are now offering lifetime storage for only £100 + VAT per Will.

This offer is only available until the end of 2017, to existing clients as well as new clients that commission us to produce their Will(s). If you are already paying monthly for Will storage with us, you might like to switch to the one-off payment of £100 + VAT per Will.

This lifetime storage includes:

  • Safe and secure storage of your original signed and attested Will for the rest of your life
  • Storage in a fire-resistant safe
  • A scanned and emailed copy of your Will(s) for you to refer to when needed

Safe storage of your Will is an absolute must. This is because the original, signed and witnessed document is the ONLY legally binding version of the Will. Anything else (e.g. a photocopy or a copy on a computer) is not legally valid as it doesn’t have your original signature.

If you store your Will yourself (e.g. at your home) and lose or damage your Will (e.g. in a fire) the courts would declare it invalid. If you would like to have a Will drawn up or you are an existing client we created a Will for, please fill in the form below and we will soon be in touch.
