A Will is a confidential document that can often be very difficult to track. Despite copies of Wills not often being available, there are several steps you can use when trying to track down a Will. You may work on obtaining a Copy of a Will by checking with the National Will Register, www.certainty.co.uk. This will put you in contact with the person who wrote the Will for the deceased.
If the deceased used a solicitor to make the Will, the solicitor may have a copy of the Will. However, if you are not an Executor in the Will, the solicitor may refuse to provide you with any information. It is often faster to contact a solicitor and receive legal advice as soon as possible to eliminate any unnecessary obstacles.
