In the wake of Youngs Law’s recent closure, Ann McCabe Solicitors are here to store your important documents free of charge.
Youngs had offices in Longton, Newcastle Under Lyme and Stoke, and have given their clients the option to collect their important documents should they wish. You should take this option as soon as possible so that you know where your documents are.
A copy is not good enough
Keeping the original versions of legal documents safe and secure is essential. While you may have online versions, scans, photocopies and other computer records, they are not legally valid. Only the original documents, which have the original signature on them, are legally binding. The original Will is necessary to prove Probate. Many banks and other financial institutions only accept original registered Lasting Powers of Attorney. Original Title Deeds are necessary to sell or transfer a house if it is not registered.
