Wills and LPA store
Where we are holding your wills and LPA documents in our firm’s safe fireproof store facility, these will now be held by the firm Gillian Gadd & Co. Notary Public. All such documents will continue to be held to your order free of charge. They will be returned to you or forwarded to another firm on request – usually this will be free of charge in the event of collection from our office in Crawley or if sent to you by ordinary post. An administration fee for processing the return will be charged if the document is to be sent by registered post or by courier.
These will continue to be stored in secure archive storage free of charge and securely destroyed after 6 years from date of completion in accordance with our standard terms and conditions of business and the provisions of the Data Protection Act. Any file still in archive store can be returned subject to an administration fee for copying and processing the release and return of the file.
