The first is to leave it with us at our Law offices. For no fee we can securely store it in a fireproof cabinet. If you choose this option make sure your loved ones know the name and location of our offices, for retrieval of the original Will should something unexpected happen.
For a one-time fee you can deposit it with the courts of Ontario.
Ensure it’s safe keeping yourself. You may choose to store it in a safe at your home, a safety deposit box in your bank or financial institution, or another safe place of your choosing.
Regardless of where you choose to store your original Will, it is important to make sure the executor or a beneficiary, knows the location of the Will.
