How important is it to rent a safe deposit box?  That is where all of your original documents (the ones you actually signed) should be kept. There are no fireproof safes for homes; typically, they will melt in less than one hour.  Make sure you tell the person who will handle your affairs where the key is located. And always remember: there may be people who will benefit if your original will or trust cannot be found.
