Keeping your Important Legal documents Safe

These days a great deal of time and energy is spent developing secure online documents, however, the vision of a paperless world is far from becoming reality, particularly for legal documents like passports, birth certificates and your Will and Enduring Power of Attorney.

The truth is, paper documents are still revered by the legal system, which means you must find a way to safely store vital documents to ensure that they are protected from theft, storms and fire damage. There have been many challenges to Wills before our Courts due to missing or stolen wills, causing unnecessary pain to those left behind. 

Once your Will and Enduring Power of Attorney have been drafted, it’s a good idea to store them in a secure facility separate to your home for ultimate protection.

Placing your documents with Custodian Vaults in your own private safety-deposit box may help avoid situations that could lead to your estate being distributed in ways you didn’t intend. By storing your Will at home in a drawer or another insecure location, you run the risk that it may be destroyed or lost.

Custodian Vaults specialises in the protection of a wide range of valuables, including but not limited to Wills, Power of Attorney, Intellectual Property, Birth Certificates, Contracts, Shares/Bond Certificates, Deeds and Passports. A medium-sized safety deposit box is usually enough space for these documents, and are available for both long and short term leasing, depending on your requirements.
