The original Will is your only Will and must be kept safely.
Once you have written your Will, it is important to ensure your last Will is sensibly stored in a safe and secure place.
One place you should never keep an original Will is at home. If you have a fire, flood or burglary, you risk losing your Will.
If your Will is damaged in anyway, then the courts could declare the Will as invalid.
You must keep your Will in a safe place; however, that place must be easily accessible when the document is needed.
