Make a Will.
According to figures released by the National Will Register on Friday, they currently hold over 8.6 million Will records – and the number is always increasing! 
Especially during such unpreceded times, the National Will Register can be very useful for people. Certainty can help to access a Will quickly to understand if the document contains any funeral wishes (for example, whether they deceased wanted to be cremated or buried), if the Will can be located straight away, it can help Probate to be applied for quicker, rather than a delay if a Will cannot be found. Another benefit of Certainty is that, if a person is unable to leave their house or if they do not want to enter the deceased’s property (if they sadly died from COVID), then there is no need to, as a Will search may show where the Will was located. 

Contact our Wills & Probate specialists 

If your loved one registered their Will with Certainty, it could be less stressful for you to allow your local Probate solicitors to carry out the Will search on your behalf, via Certainty, to ensure that the deceased’s Will is found. 

How do I register my Will with Certainty? 

Well, your local Probate Solicitors (who also deal with Wills), will register your Will, with no fuss or additional work required by you, at no extra cost to you. 
We provide Certainty with the following information, via an online portal: 
- Your name 
- Your Address 
- Your date of birth 
- The date of your Will 
- The details of who witnessed your Will 
- The details of your executors 
We do not provide them with details of your Will itself, or give them a copy of your Will, so there is no risk of this information being released to anyone else or stored some where outside of your control. 
The original Will can then be stored with ourselves, so if your loved ones needed to locate it in the future, we could contact them and confirm we store the Will (this information could only be released to your Executors).
