Secure Your Legacy: Make Sure Your Will Is Secure And Accessible

 

After preparing your Will, it’s crucial to keep the original document safe and in a location known to your executors. Why? Because the English Probate Court only accepts the original Will for processing your Estate; photocopies won’t cut it. That’s where HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) comes in. They offer a specialised service to help you store your Will securely. Here’s why it’s a smart choice:

 

Reliability:

HMCTS is a government-backed organisation, so you can trust them with your important documents. You won’t have to worry about the service going out of business.

 

Accessibility:

Expatriates can easily access this service. HMCTS accepts Wills by courier and recorded delivery, making it convenient for those living abroad.

 

Affordability:

Unlike commercial arrangements, the cost of depositing your Will with HMCTS is only £22 per document (as of May 2024), a one-off fee that won’t break the bank.

 

Plus, you and your executors can access your Will whenever needed, without any extra charges. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind and ensuring your wishes are carried out as intended.

Don’t leave your Will’s safety to chance. Secure it with HMCTS today! Contact me for more information.
