Will Storage Singapore | Wills Custody Service
May I ask you a question?
Have you written your will?
If you do… Then do you think that the legal Will is an important document?
Do you think that you should keep it in a safe place?
Or best still.. Are you looking to store your Will in a private location?
If your answer is a resounding YES, then we can help.
We have helped numerous individuals to store their Will in a private environment and only upon the death of the Testator (the person that make the will), then the family members are informed and retrieve the original Will in a hassle free manner. This will allow your original Will to be kept private and confidential.
Why Must I Safekeep My Will?
Safekeeping your Will in a private and confidential place is very important because the Will document is just a paper document to state your wishes. It can be easily tampered, stolen, misplaced or even destroyed.
Just think about this..
If one of your beneficiary knows about the share of his inheritance which is written in your Will and for some reason, he or she is unhappy with the distribution.. Is there a possibility that he or she will think of ways to tamper the content of the Will, steal away the document, relocate the position of the Will so that you can’t find them or even destroy them to make sure that your Will will not be valid in the event that you have passed on.
Sounds scary right?
Yes, it certainly is!
What Are The Duties of Executors?
There is another reason why you should safe keep your Will is a secured place.
So that your Executors are able to find them.
We understand that when a person has drafted a Will, they will also appoint an Executor to administrate your estate according to your Will.
But do you know that, he must first able to locate the Will before he is able to apply for the Grant of Probate?
So, think about it, if your Executor is not able to find or locate your drafted Will, how is he able to go to the court and apply for the Grant of Probate.
Let alone distribute your estate base on what you have written in your Will.
What is Will Custody?
Will Custody is a service that we provide for anybody that wants to store and safe keep their legal Will document in a private and confidential environment.
As we are living in a growing affluent society and our citizens are more educated, there is an increase amount of people that understand the importance of writing a will to make sure that their assets are distributed base on what they want and wish for.
Which is really great!
Here’s the catch:
They do not know where to place this important document in the right place. Yes, the emphasis is RIGHT PLACE.
May I ask you..
Where will you keep this important document?
I believe your reply will be similar to most people and keep in some of these common places:
- In their own safe at home or anywhere that you think is safe in your house
- Safe deposit box in the bank
I am not saying that it is wrong to keep this document in these places. But, my question to you is…
Is this the best solution for such an important document?
Or is there a better choice?
I believe when you make your legal Will document, most people will not discuss the details of the Will and tell anybody where you keep your Will document. That might include your Executor (An Executor is a person that will help you to administer the distribution of your estates according to the Will of the decease).
So, can I say that, you are probably the only person that knows where exactly is the location of the Will?
So, may I know, how does your love ones or even your Executor knows where exactly is this document?
Just think about it…
Some people left the legal Will document in the safe bank deposit thinking that it is probably the safest and private place. Just for your information, do you know that in the event that the person has passed away, the safe deposit together with the bank account is freeze? Nobody is allowed to have access to any of the accounts when the person has passed away.
Just think about this very seriously..
If for some reason, you are suffering from mental incapacity, like dementia or senile, do you think you will remember where you have placed your Will document in your house or in which bank?
If your Will cannot be found or cannot be retrieved when you have passed away, it is as good as you have not make a Will!
