certainty, the national will register
When someone dies, it’s surprisingly common for family members to be unsure if they made a Will, let alone know where it is stored. A missing Will can cause your family worry, stress and problems when dealing with your estate. Certainty is the only UK Register of Wills, and its main objective is to ensure that your Will can be quickly and easily located by your family when it is needed – and not overlooked, lost or untraced.
Your Will can be registered confidentially with Certainty and your personal details are never released to anyone. Once this has been done, you will receive a certificate which contains a unique registration number. This can be stored in your personal papers at home, where it can be found by those who need the Will – such as a next of kin, Executor or beneficiary.
Using the certificate and the registration number, a search can be made for the Will document – which will be stored in our strong room. We are notified that someone has made a search for the Will and we then contact them to establish communication.
