Writing and Storage of Wills
What you Need to Know
Like solicitors and will writing services, a Probate Service can also store your will for you if you are a resident of England or Wales. They usually charge a flat fee of £20.
However, you need to make an official request to them before you are allowed to take it. This means that you can only take it when you are alive. Even a solicitor cannot get it for you.
There are many options of will storage, each with its pros and cons. It is upon you to decide which storage option best suits you. Regardless of the option you take, it is important that no other documents are attached to the will with paperclips or staples. Just a practical note – The marks left by such attachments may raise suspicions on issues such as unauthorized amendments or missing parts that may give your executor a tough time!.
