1. There are no requirements laid down in law before a solicitor is able to store wills on their premises. This area of the law is unregulated. The level of security is left to the discretion of the individual solicitor. Neither the Solicitors acts nor the general law lays down any security requirements for solicitors to be able to store wills on their premises. However, in law, a solicitor is bailee and custodian of any will in their possession and will be liable in law for any loss or damage. Accordingly, most solicitors enter into some arrangement with an outside storage provider to store their wills and important documents.
