With the sad closure of BCK, a number of former BCK clients have asked us what to do about their Wills, documents and files held there.
Clients of law firms own their Wills and other documents held in their lawyer’s safe custody facility. Clients also own most of the documents on the files held by a law firm in relation to their matter. Clients may ask for their Will, safe custody documents or file to be given to them at any time. However, the law firm may require any outstanding legal fees to be paid before they release a client’s file.
Ross Law has now taken over the safe custody documents held by BCK. We understand that they have written to the owners of those documents. If you left Wills or other important documents with BCK and wish to collect them, call Ross Law. If you prefer, we may be able to assist.
However Ross Law have not taken over former BCK client files and these effectively remain in limbo. A number of our clients have resolved that it is not worth the effort to try to retrieve them. If it is critical that secure a BCK file (for example due to litigation), you will inevitably require legal assistance.
Conrad Law provides free safe custody facilities for our clients’ Wills or other important documents. Former business or Wills clients of BCK are welcome to utilise our safe custody facilities. We can arrange to collect your safe custody documents.
If you are concerned or there is urgent need to obtain documents from BCK, do not hesitate to contact us to discuss how we can assist.
