Will Found – Client Protected

The National Will Register continues to serve testators, solicitors and Willwriters. This can be amply demonstrated using a case that came to the attention of our office in January.

9.09am: The deceased's family were unable to find a Will and performed a Will search.

9.11am: The Will search identified a solicitor based in the North West as the writer and holder of the Will.

9.12am: Certainty notifies the solicitor of the Will search match.

9.30am: The solicitor contacts the searcher to authenticate the enquiry.

The next morning: The searcher contact the solicitor and and instructs them to carry out the probate.


Without the Will search, the deceased's family would not have been able to locate the firm or therefore the Will and the estate would have been distributed intestate.
