Keeping your important documents safe

Did you know we offer a free Safe Custody Service to all valued clients? We will store important documents such as your title deeds, Will and Power of Attorney securely and maintain a register listing each document held on your behalf.

You can retain copies of your documents at home for convenience, with peace of mind that your originals are held in a safe and central location. 

Being unable to locate an original document at a crucial time is not only inconvenient but can be disastrous. Imagine being unable to find the Will of a loved one who has died. The grieving family is left with uncertainty, inconvenience and additional cost making a time of loss even more difficult.

If you are unsure whether we are holding documents on your behalf, simply arrange to call into our office to verify your identity and our friendly staff will assist.

If you would like us to store your documents for you, just bring them down to the office and we will register them in our system and provide you with a record of receipt. We recommend also that you let a trusted family member or friend know we are holding your documents, so they can be located quickly in an emergency.
This newsletter is intended to provide general information. 
You should obtain professional advice before you undertake any course of action.
