Deed Storage Free Service

At Rigoli Lawyers we offer all our clients a free service to store Wills, Enduring Powers of Attorney, Certificates of Title and original Trust Deeds.

These documents are held safely and securely in a double locked fireproof safe, are catalogued as well as saved in scanned electronic form.

Documents are not released from our deed safe to any related party or third party unless we have undertaken a full verification of identity (i.e. client’s driver’s licence produced).   If an executor of a will requires the documents we still need to sight their driver’s licence together with the original Death Certificate of any client who we hold the will for.

We also provide a free regular -reminder service to our clients regarding Wills and Powers of Attorney.  This is beneficial in case an update is required, if there has been a change in circumstances, or a material change in the law.
