Affordable wills from a name you can trust

Whether you're planning your children's future, buying a house or just making sure your wishes are clearly stated, we can help you take care of your will.

Wills search

Wills are often made many years before they are needed and, as a result, many get forgotten about when people move and their circumstances change. If someone has died and you can't find their will, or you think another will has been made since the document you have, Which? is here to help.

Our Which? Wills search service allows you to quickly search for a missing will with Certainty, the National Will Register.

You can choose from two different types of search: registered or combined. A registered will search – as the name suggests – will check for registered wills in Certainty, the National Will Register. A combined will search will search for both registered and unregistered wills, focusing on where the deceased person lived, worked or had other connections. This search will also post a notice on Certainty's missing will noticeboard, which is checked daily by thousands of solicitors.

Which? is working with Certainty to help you search for wills. Your use of these search services will be governed by Certainty's Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy.

A small fee is applied by Which? and included in the stated price of a Certainty Will Search.
