Losing your Will can be easier than ever, in fact many people would say that keeping track of your Will is the hard part! Here we highlight how quickly you can lose your Will and how vital it can be to save a second copy and store it correctly.
If you are sure that you have lost your Will, your next steps should be checking to see if you have any backups. If you do not have any backups and you are 100% sure that you have lost your Will - then you will need to make a new Will.
Moving home or simply doing a bit of spring cleaning can lead to a missing Will, especially if it is a hard copy and is not stored correctly. However, having a PDF version of your Will could be damaged by things such as a hacked / damaged computer system, accidentally wiping away any saved documents or if you have lost any login details to online clouds / drives.
Always be sure to check your home for your Will and even contact any solicitors / Will writers to see if they have a spare copy. Make sure that it is not saved on your computer and also check places like the bin just in case it may have been mistaken for unimportant documents.
Be sure to alert another family member or someone you trust about the situation, this is so you can have friendly support during this stressful period. If someone has taken your Will, you can report that to the police as your Will is your property. However, if this person was planning to steal from your estate or cause any damage to your Will, then the offense can be considered more serious and action can be taken in order to get your Will back.
