Very friendly and helpful staff
I found the website very easy to use having recently done my first Will search. The courses Certainty run are very informative too.

Great system ...with great service
Having this facility is essential to ensure that I can provide the best possible service for my clients to ensure that their Will can be located easily by their loved ones after their death. No more ringing around by distressed family members as one call to the National Will Register puts them in contact with me immediately.
I can also search the register simply to ensure that I am administering an estate with the correct Will which gives both me and my clients peace of mind. The national will registry staff are always friendly helpful and efficient which just makes it a perfect resource.

I always recommend Certainty
Every time I receive a personal call from someone looking for a Will I recommend Certainty. I’m surprised that I’m the only solicitor that makes this recommendation to the caller. I often ask for an email address and send them a link as well. I think it’s part of the services of just being a solicitor that we should try and help the public in finding Wills even if we didn’t write them and even if we aren’t going to deal with the estate administration work – we have an image problem and going that little bit further for complete strangers can only help, Certainty gives us that opportunity to improve our image.

Great Concept
Great concept which I have seen proven very useful! I fully promote the Register and will continue to do so. I have also always found my dealings with anyone involved in the Certainty team to be pleasant and proactive in wanting to help.

Vital part of our process
At Blanchard’s we deal with Estates in cases of intestacy; we learnt the importance of double checking for a will in these cases recently and now the Certainty Will Search has become a vital part of our process. A will was found on the very first search we applied for via Certainty and saved us a lot of what could have been wasted time.

Our requests are always dealt with efficiently and we are updated regularly. In cases where a will is not found and we require certain insurances it really helps to have a Certainty Will Search report against the deceased.

An excellent service
Dear Certainty,
My sister and I used your service as a last resort after my mother died, when we found that our mother's Will had been deliberately destroyed. Your records found a valid Will from 1989 together with a note identifying personal items for specific disposal and sentimental thoughts for us. Without your help our inheritance would have been lost and our mother's wishes not adhered to.

Many thanks for an excellent service in a time of extreme distress.
Regards,
John and Kate

Will Search Result
Dear Clive

Thank you and your team for reporting the results of the Will search. While the results of the search proved negative it was a positive step in obtaining a Letter of Administration and I am pleased to inform you that the Probate Office is proceeding with my application. A merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all.

Kind regards

Mervyn

Found the Will
Not sure if a later will existed used the Will search Combined service as recommended by my solicitor. We quickly received a call from a law firm asking us to bring the death certificate in. When we did that they declared that they had my mothers will. My mother had written her will with them in 1991. Saved us a lot of issues and there was no way we would have found it without this service.

As a family we are so relieved.
