Will Storage: Did you know?

It's important to keep your Will stored safely and securely as it's one of the most important documents you will personally own.



It must be kept in pristine condition, as any signs of wear or tear will invalidate it.


The original versions of legal documents, such as Wills and Powers of Attorney are the only legally binding versions.


Scans, photocopies and computer records are not legally valid because they don’t have your original signature on them.


The original Will is your only Will and must be kept safely.


One place you should never keep an original Will is at home. If you have a fire, flood or burglary, you risk losing your Will. If your Will is damaged in any way, then the courts could declare the Will invalid.


You must keep your Will in a safe place; however that place must be easily accessible when the document is needed!


There are various ways to store your Will. Your solicitor or Will writer may store it for you at their offices.
