SAFE STORAGE of Legal Documents
is just a part of our Peace of Mind Service.
We exist to help you keep your Legal Planning (mainly Last Will and Testament, Powers of Attorney, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Advance Medical Directives, Living Wills, Medical Proxy etc.)
Up to date.
Tax, Legislation, family and business circumstances are constantly changing – Will Custodian Ltd reminds you each year to briefly Review your Legal Planning, and supplies you with a Newsletter and a checklist to help you. All the will writing firms who use us also provide you with a HELPLINE at no extra charge, so you can discuss issues raised in the Newsletter or checklist just in case you need to amend anything.
We store your documents in fireproof safes to keep them safe and secure, and we issue both you and your Executors with Certificates of Storage so everyone knows where they are kept and how to obtain them when the need arises. Reember, the chances are that you will be burgled twice in you life, and you have a better than 1 in 6 chance of a house fire which may incenerate the contents of “fireproof” boxes. Worse still it is reckoned that OVER ONE THIRD of all Last Wills are never found - often being “lost” deliberately be relatives or partners of relatives who find them and don’t like the contents!
Thousands of Wills and other documents are lost, mislaid and stolen every year, but thousands more are lost because no one knows where they are - and the consequences can be DISASTROUS for those left behind, with homes being lost, and inheritances going to entirely the wrong people under the Rules of Intestacy.
What will we store?
We will store Last Will and Testaments, Ethical Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney, Land Registry Land Certificates etc. We do not store intrinsically valuable documents.
Who will we work with?
We are happy to work with other professionals (and send out a personalised Newsletter, tailored to them), or we are delighted to deal direct with the public.
Much more than safe storage for your Last Will and Testament, Power of Attorney etc
