Well, if you are not aware, you should know that the difference with your Will is that, if it is lost or damaged after death, your estate might be dealt with under the terms of a previous Will you prepared or as if you died even without preparing a will. Such a case happened in the life of Margaret Johnson’s cousin, Susan, who was supposed to be the heir to Margaret’s property. But after making a number of Wills and destroying them with the preparation of a new one, Margaret would destroy her old one. But it so happened that her last Will could never be found where she supposedly named her property in the name of Susan. This only meant that it would be understood as an intestacy and distributed among her brother and nephew and would leave Susan homeless.
But fortune is something that no one is sure of. There were some boxes that were kept on the loft of the home Susan shared with Margaret for thirty years. While moving these boxes with the help of her friend’s son, Derek, they came across what looked like an old bathroom cabinet and inside it there was an envelope that contained Margaret’s last Will. And undoubtedly, it contained Susan’s fortune.
Safety Comes First
The story of Susan and Margaret only says that invaluable things like a Will are to be kept in a safe place. But that does not mean that it should be kept in some place where it is almost impossible to be found. Professionals in Kings Court Trust assures that you Will is going to be stored in some place and will be available according to the norms of the time.
