We offer safe storage for important documents.
Your Will and any other relevant legal documents, such as Powers of Attorney, are kept in a waterproof wallet in a specialist document archive facility. While your documents are stored they are fully insured against loss or damage.
If anything happens to your documents, they will be recreated and replaced for you, free of charge. If your document is are lost or damaged at the time it is needed, or its loss or damage only comes to light at the time it is needed then we are insured for up to £2million to compensate anyone who loses out or incurs costs as a result of there being no legally binding document in existence.
You will be provided with plastic identity cards for you and your Executors. They display your name, a unique storage reference number and the contact details. You can access your documents at any time – free of charge. The documents can either be returned to us or directly to you, using an insured delivery service.
The original Will, Trust and Power of Attorney documents are your only valid ones and must be kept safely.
One place you should never keep an original document is at home. If you have a fire, flood or burglary, you risk losing them. If your document is damaged in any way, then the courts could declare the document invalid.
You must keep your documents in a safe place; however that place must be easily accessible when the document is needed!
