Myers & Co offers a free, secure and fire-proof facility for storing original documents, including wills and title deeds at our offices in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, to ensure your documents are kept safe until they are required.

Storing your important documents

When you have made a will or purchased a house, it is important to store your original documents in a secure location to avoid them being lost or accidentally destroyed. Documents like a will or a deed can easily be misplaced over time, such as when moving home or decluttering.

Wills

When you make your will with us, we will store your will for you free of charge. This gives you peace of mind and ensures that your will is kept safe until it is needed.

It is vital that you tell your family or executors to contact us for a copy. We can also register your will on the Certainty National Registry of Wills.

Title deeds

If we have helped you to buy a freehold or leasehold house or apartment, we can store the title deeds at our offices for safekeeping. Title deeds are paper documents setting out the legal ownership for land and property. Title deeds are also held digitally by HM Land Registry after your ownership of the property has been registered.

Amending a will
