Why risk storing your will and legal documents like lasting power of attorney or house deeds at home, where they are vulnerable to damage, loss, or theft? Entrust the safekeeping of your important legal documents, including your will, to Wills & Wishes Legal’s specialised storage service and have peace of mind that your original documents will be securely stored and protected.

Where Should I Store My Will?

Once you’ve taken the important step of creating your will with our Local Will Writing Service, it’s important to choose a secure and reliable location.

By storing your original documents at home, you take the risk that could lead to their loss or destruction. Things such as fire, flood, burglary, or accidental shredding can threaten the safety of these very important documents. Additionally, misplacing your will when moving house or simply within your home can create a challenge for your loved ones when they need to find it.


While a few options are available to keep your will safe, one of the best choices is to store your Will with a reputable will storage service. By entrusting your will to a secure storage facility, you can have peace of mind knowing that it is safeguarded against loss, damage, or falling into the wrong hands. Your will will be found when it is needed by who needs to find it.

We use a dedicated storage facility designed to provide a secure environment for your important legal documents, ensuring their integrity and confidentiality at all times. In addition, as part of the service, we ensure that all wills are registered with Certainty, the National Will Register for no extra charge.
