Unfortunately, Will writing or estate planning is not a regulated profession

Unfortunately, Will writing or estate planning is not a regulated profession


It was going to be regulated a few years ago but at the last minute the process was cancelled. Therefore, there are some important things to look for when using a Will writer for your Will or Power of Attorney. 1. Ask friends and family for recommendations 2. Check they are members of a regulatory body. There are two main bodies, The Society of Will Writers and Institute of Professional Willwriters. By being a member of one of these bodies it means they should have the required knowledge you need and that they conduct themselves in an ethical & professional manner 3. Professional Indemnity Insurance. Any reputable Will writer will have PI cover, don’t be afraid to ask to see it 4. Fixed price list 5. Look for good reviews If you need help or advice looking for a Will writer, please get in contact or you can search for a member of the Society of Will Writer on their website.
