Would You Write Your Will In The Sand
So you finally made your Will; you thought long and hard about who you would like to deal with your estate when you die and who you would like to leave your belongings to. You then signed it and forgot about it. When you die will anybody be able to say for sure whether you made a Will or not and, if you did, where it is? If not, your estate will be dealt with as if there was no Will made by you (as an intestacy)! This does not need to happen. Making a Will gives you certainty about what will happen to your assets when you die. However, this cannot happen unless your Will can be found. Dealing with the death of a close friend or family member is difficult; the last thing you want them to be doing at that time is searching for that your Will.
This is where Certainty The National Will Register comes in to help. The Certainty Will Search is proven to reduce the chances of an estate being incorrectly administered as an intestacy. It provides friends and family members with an accredited search process to check whether a deceased person made a Will. This in turn protects the Testator’s wishes, the executors and any beneficiaries.
You wouldn’t write your Will in the sand in case it was washed away and never found! Here at Stonehewer Moss Solicitors we understand the importance of being able to locate a Will. Therefore we now include the registering of all Wills that we prepare and store free of charge for our clients on Certainty The National Will Register as standard within our fees.
