What happens if we can’t find a will?

At a very vulnerable time, it can be very stressful for the executor to find that they cannot find a particular will, and so begin the process of probate.
Those having made a will are usually advised to store copies of the document in a safe place and notify the executor of their location. 
Once you have actually prepared a will, it is always wise to ensure that whoever is storing the will for you, has a fireproof safe so the document will not inadvertently become damaged.
If your loved one has passed away and as executor, you are aware that they prepared a will before their death, then notify your probate practitioner, who will be able to decipher what the particular wishes were for, which were detailed in the document.
