Kevin who is spearheading the initiative says, “We believe Certainty is the first organisation to actually provide a compliant solution to the chronic problem of will registration.” In a recent public survey commissioned by Certainty, 67% of people surveyed were unaware of the location of their parents’ will. Certainty.co.uk is launching with a unique offer whereby 12.8 million free of charge will registrations are available to the general public to be used in association with solicitors. Nigel McGinnity, CEO, Certainty says, “Our commitment to provide 12.8 million free registrations to the public and our dynamic relationship with the legal profession ensures the success of the register. Certainty.co.uk is receiving great demand from the public, in fact one law firm had over 100 enquiries in just 48 hours to register their client’s wills.” Laurence Collings T.E.P (Head of the Wills and Probate Department at Brownings Solicitors Redditch) says, "We at Brownings see the Certainty Will Register as being an essential and vital way of ensuring that the whereabouts of a Will is known and recorded. We are positively encouraging our clients past and present to register their Wills with Certainty. Brownings are very pleased to be a Founder Member of this long overdue national Will Register." Judy Dyke partner with Tyndallwoods Solicitors said, "We have been waiting for many years for a National Will Register and I am pleased that Tyndallwoods had the opportunity to become one of the founder Members of Certainty. Once Wills are registered with Certainty they will not be overlooked, lost or untraced.
