Despite the risks caused by a Will being lost, damaged or destroyed when it is needed, some people choose to make their own arrangements to keep their Will.
Most people claim to make a Will during their lifetime, however only 30% of estates are administered by a legally valid Will. Somewhere in between, a lot of Wills that are written go missing or are not found.
The Certainty National Will Register is a record of Wills written and, more importantly, where they are being kept.
The Certainty National Will Register is chosen, endorsed and used by the public, legal profession, law firms, PI insurers, Government agencies, charities, the public and other associated sectors and organisations to Register Wills and Search for Wills.

Thousands of Will writing professionals and the public use Certainty to register Wills and search for Wills prior to distributing the estate.
