Will Register & Will Registration
Introduction to Will Registration
Our Will Register and Will Registration service
have been developed to resolve the stress and trauma that comes when a Will
is discovered to be lost or missing.
For a single registration fee of £20.00 you can register your will and
amend its location as frequently as you wish. Once you have registered
your will with thewillplace.com you will be provided with a certificate, personal
identification number and also two credit cards sized identity cards.
This will help to inform people that the location of your will is stored with
thewillplace.com, together with the secure process they need to go through
to receive the Will.
As a team of professionals we have experienced several distressing scenes with
clients who have found themselves in this position. Having been approached
by the deceased's family - to administer the estate - what is a stressful time
becomes even worse when the deceased Will cannot be found.
The family are certain the deceased made a Will, but despite searches it remains
lost. Even after extensive correspondence, by the solicitor, with banks, building
societies and other institutions; after the placing of advertisements in newspapers
and the law society gazette, the Will still remains lost.
In those very unfortunate circumstances, it may be that there is no alternative
but to apply on an intestacy basis for probate - i.e. as if the deceased had
not made a will. Although stressful enough when this happens, it could be made
worse by tax implications, depending on the value of the estate.
To Register your Will with us will help alleviate these problems significantly
if not totally.
Will data information - such as name, address, postcode, date of birth, national
insurance number, date and location of will - are stored on a dedicated and
secure database. Members of the public can make a background search, which
will only reveal whether we hold data on a named individual. If such data is
stored by us, they will then be referred to a will professional, who can retrieve
the data. This system has been devised to provide additional security for the
thewillplace.com data information system is also an extremely helpful tool
for professionals. By means of individual passwords, they will be able to
access the site to find your details, including the location of your will.
Once your details are registered, a certificate will be issued to you with
a personalised number. In addition, plastic identity cards - with our name
and contact details on - will also be issued. These cards can be easily stored
in a pocket or purse. Please be assured that will data information will only
ever be released to will-professionals upon production of the appropriate
evidence i.e. Death Certificate.
