Gibson and Associates Solicitors: How Do I Keep My Will Safe?
Unfortunately many people do not realize the importance of keeping their Will in a safe place. In fact there are many who do not appreciate the value of making a Will in the first place. However, once you have made a Will it is important to recognize that the process is not now complete. Your Will does require some up keep.
The provisions in a Will do change with time and if you made you Will and put it away thirty years ago and haven't given it any thought, then it is likely that it will be out of date if you die without updating it.
This could cause significant problems for your loved ones and family as it could exclude the very people you wanted as beneficiaries and result in people inheriting from your estate who you did want to exclude.
As a result, you should look after your Will, keep it up to date and follow these simple rules for keeping it safe.
Most people who make a Will go home and put their Will away and forget about it. This is fine, but before you do this you should tell a loved one or family member that you have actually made a Will and also tell them where you are putting it. This means that someone knows that you have a Will and has some idea of how to find it.
When you die, if your Will was not located then you would be deemed to have died intestate and the laws of intestacy will be followed when allocating your estate. These rules are strict and none of your wishes will be taken into account.
Therefore, storing your Will once it is made is crucial. The solicitor who drafted your Will may keep it for you, usually in a fire proof safe to protect it from fire or water damage. In addition, you will probably have a certified copy of your Will to store at home. Storing the original at home has risks such as fire or flooding.
In addition to the storage of your Will, keeping it up to date with your life events is another part of making sure it does what it is supposed to when you die, which is to benefit the people you have chosen in it.
This means that you will have to update it with a codicil for any small changes you want to make, or if you have a child or get married or divorced, you will need to make a new Will to reflect these changes.
If you are not sure if your Will needs updating, your solicitor will be happy to discuss this with you and offer you advice on whether your Will needs an update. Being responsible with your Will could make a huge difference to your family once you have passed away, so check yours now.
