Certainty for your Will with Farewell


Leaving a Will makes sure that your wishes are carried out after you are no longer around ensuring that your last wishes - particularly surrounding your assets and property are adhered to following your death. But only as long as your Will can be found. Sophie Evans reports.


F


or family, beneficiaries, executors and administrators - the people you want to inherit and distribute your worldly possessions to after you


have passed on - finding a Will in the future may not be so straightforward as you think. A Will is a personal and private document.


Usually the original is stored with the solicitor who wrote it. For many reasons it can be unclear over time to your family, beneficiaries and executors where your Will is or which solicitor has it. It may even be presumed that you never actually wrote a Will! That’s why millions of people have chosen to


register their Wills with Certainty the National Will Register – where one Will is registered every two seconds. Certainty is the provider of Will Registration


and Will Search services in the UK and, is chosen, endorsed and used by the legal profession, law


firms, insurers, charities, the public and other associated sectors and organisations. Will registration with Certainty the National


Will Register tags and traces a Will so in the future, and when it is needed, it can be easily found. Your Will is a document that definitely needs to be found and found quickly upon death. For example some Wills contain funeral wishes; did the deceased want to be buried or cremated? The National Association of Funeral Directors recommends you search the Certainty register to quickly understand if any funeral wishes were contained within a Will. Registering your Will allows the safe and timely retrieval. Then shortly after the funeral your Estate will be distributed in accordance with your wishes, after all that’s why you made your Will. Registration removes the risk that the Will can’t be found, and avoids the unnecessary stress this can cause for those important people you have made provision for. Not being able to locate a Will can lead to the estate to be distributed under the laws of ‘intestacy’. This means that your estate may not be distributed in the way you had intended. Missing Wills and uncertainty as to whether a


Will exists or not, can cause additional distress for family members, beneficiaries, executors and administrators. To register your Will takes just 60 seconds. The


register does not see or need a copy of your Will. It’s a little effort that goes a long way to avoid distress, confusion and complications about the location or existence of your Will. If you cannot find a Will or are unsure that


your loved one wrote a Will then you can also use the link below to search the register and also a national search for Wills which have not been registered. You can now register or search for a Will
