Secure storage of a Will is vital. It is estimated that of all Wills made in England and Wales, almost half fail because they cannot be produced in an acceptable form when the time comes.
Your original Will is a very important document, and it needs to be kept in a safe and secure place where your Executors can find it. Only the original signed Will, in good condition, is acceptable for Probate. You may also want to make alterations to your Will as your personal circumstances change.
It is therefore important that your Will is stored safely and securely, for life.
