WillKey, Malaysia’s first centralised Will registry, introduced its concept and services to the members of the Malaysian Bar attending the Bar’s 73rd Annual General Meeting held at Wisma MCA in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur recently.
The Malaysian Bar meeting saw a total of 835 registered members and a host of other partners in attendance.
The physical presence of WillKey at the national meeting was to create better awareness of
WillKey’s services among the Advocates and Solicitors coming from every state in Peninsular Malaysia.
With WillKey serving as a facility to register, store and search for Wills, where
testators can register information about the whereabouts, or deposit copies of their Wills, the efficiency of the estate administration process can be improved and therefore benefit both clients and lawyers.
“Our motive is to assist our clients in the legal profession, in areas such as Will registration
and storage. Having a Will is essentially important for anyone who has assets and wants to
determine who inherits them. WillKey seeks to ensure that Wills can be easily found, to avoid disputes which can be long drawn-out and which could extend from months to years.
“We believe that Malaysians are always looking for easier and more efficient ways to get
things done, so as Malaysia’s first centralised Will registry, WillKey is offering a much-
needed service in this niche,” said Mr Su Tiang Joo, Director of MWD Wills Depository Sdn
WillKey comes in as a centralised registry that allows predetermined persons such as lawyers, executors or next-of-kin to access information on a particular Will, conveniently and without hassle. It also serves as a platform for testators, lawyers and Will writing service providers to register and or store their Wills or their clients’ Wills with WillKey, to make the search process for a Will less tedious.
WillKey intends to provide affordable services without compromising its security and credibility. A testator only needs to register once with WillKey with a one-time fee of
RM133.33. Will storage subscription fees are available from as low as RM3.33 per month.
WillKey’s fees were designed with affordability in mind, to avoid this investment into
ensuring the security and safe retrieval of a Will becoming an undue financial burden.
