Once you have written your will, the next step is taking the appropriate measures to make sure it is safe. Your will is what reflects your wishes after you die, and it is imperative that nothing happens to it once it has been drafted and signed. Whilst there is no legal requirement as to where you store your will, keeping your will in your home means that it is susceptible to damp, mould, spillages, fire and flooding.
If your will cannot be found or is damaged, then it can be legally declared as invalid. This means there is a risk that your assets will be distributed in accordance with intestacy; as if you had died without writing a will at all. So, what’s the solution?
At RRK Legal, we can offer secure document storage in a climate-controlled, insured facility to protect your will and legal documents from fire, theft, flooding, or loss.
One annual fee per individual or couple
If your will cannot be found after your death, either any previous will found will be used, or the government will divide your estate as if you died without a will.
