Regulation of Will-Writing

Support grows for regulation of will-writing

Further to the BBC Panorama broadcast supporting our view that will-writing should be a regulated activity, there has been a surge of recent support.

A recent article in the Law Society Gazette shows that there is growing support from Consumer Organisations, Charitable Organisations and Trade Unions for the regulation of will-writing.

As opposed to non-regulated will-writers, solicitors are fully qualified and are regulated  by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. They offer the security of accountability and a clear course of redress, backed by insurance.

Alternatively you can download and read through our wills questionnaire. Just work through the questions and then send us back the questionnaire, marked private and confidential, and for the attention of Jane Parker in our Wills and Probate team.

If you need any help whilst going through the questionnaire, please do not hesitate to call us on the number above.  This will give us the core information that we require to enable us to go on and draw up a comprehensive will for you. Once we receive the questionnaire, we will contact you to discuss the replies and obtain any further information that we require.
