Your original Will should be kept in a safe place where it cannot be damaged or tampered with. Further, you should never write on it, staple or unstaple it, put a paper clip in it or mark in in any way. Problems may arise after your death, if there are signs that your Will may have been tampered with.
It is a good idea to either give a copy to your Executor, or let your Executor know where you have placed the original Will. All too often, difficulties arise in locating the original Will.
At Stanley & Co. Lawyers, if we have prepared your Will, we offer you the option of storing it in our Deeds room located in Adelaide. Our Deeds room is secure and fireproof. This service is free of charge to you.
