Register a Will with the SWW
Will registration is used by the Society of Will Writer’s members to ensure their clients’ Wills can be found quickly and confidentially at the time it is needed.
Register a Will for your client
As a SWW member, ensure that a Will for someone else can be located and used to correctly distribute an estate, removing the risks associated with a Will being lost, misplaced or forgotten about over the passage of time.
Executors and beneficiaries unaware
Original Wills, safely stored by Will writing professionals, may be overlooked because executors and beneficiaries are unaware of their existence or location.
Ensure final wishes are known
The time has been taken between you and the client to outline final wishes in a Will and a Will Registration helps to ensure these are made known at the right time.
Prevent incorrect distribution
Ensure that a Will can be located and used to correctly distribute an estate, removing the risks associated with a Will being lost, misplaced or forgotten about over the passage of time.
Mitigate against intentional suppression
The knowledge of the existence and whereabouts of a Will may be intentionally suppressed by a discontented next of kin. Registering a Will ensures it can be searched for, located quickly and discussed confidentially.
