Public Opinion - What do I do if I can't find a Will
What do I do if I can't find a Will? Until recently there was not a lot you could do! In reality you became one of thousands of beneficiaries every year that fall victim to the distress caused by a missing or presumed never written Will. Until Certainty launched, there was not a truly effective way to either search for a Will or prevent a Will from being untraceable.
Public opinion on the matter of a lost Will is rarely taken into account, accepting that intestacy is the natural evolution and only route in the case of a missing Will.
But the public can and do want to protect themselves to avoid going down this route. Will registration is a simple process which means a Will can be found and Intestacy avoided.
Until Certainty there was not an effective way to trace the location of a Will - that is why Certainty exists.
