Locating the Will

The Will, or evidence of where the Will is kept, should be found in the deceased’s belongings; this is a good place to start when looking for it. A Will storage service is offered by solicitors and banks in order to ensure that the Will is kept safe; this should be the next port of call. If you believe the Will is kept at a solicitor’s, but are unsure which one, it is possible to post an advertisement in the Law Society Gazette, visit: http://www.lawgazette.co.uk The Safe Custody Department of the Principal Probate Registry in London also offers a storage facility, a receipt for this service should be found in the deceased’s belongings. The probate registry can be found at: Principal Registry of Family Division, First Avenue House, 42-49 High Holborn, London, WC1V 6NP. If locating the Will is proving difficult then you can utilise online search facilities for free, for example: http://www.certainty.co.uk
