Where should you keep your will?

Keep your will in a safe place. It is preferable not to keep the will yourself in case it is mislaid. If the will is mislaid, it may be presumed to have been revoked. Solicitors hold wills on behalf of clients, usually at no charge. You should keep a copy of your will and note on it where the original is kept.

It is also advisable to tell your executor where your will is kept. If you want to give personal instructions that you do not want to appear in your will, you can simply leave your executor a letter of instructions.
