Regulation of Will Writers


or email



In 2013, Chris Grayling, then the Lord Chancellor Justice Minister, rejected calls from many bodies, including the Society of Will Writers, for regulation. Interestingly, this has prompted the Law Society to bring in a special qualification for solicitors so that they too can prove competence in this field.


The Law Society of England and Wales has launched a campaign calling on Government to make Willwriting a reserved (regulated) activity. Part of the 'manifesto' states "We do not advocate that solicitors never make mistakes - the key point is not who can draft a better will, but what safeguards are in place to promote high standards and provide protection when something goes wrong"


Align Wills and Trusts uses the services of The Society of Willwriters specialist team in Lincoln for Wills and associated documents so that you can be assured that they will be prepared and backed by a strong, professional legal team.






How Important IS Regulation?


Sadly, we have all see the chaos caused by the banks and other financial institution failing, all of whom were “regulated” by the Financial Services Authority – this did not mean that the products or services offered were in anyway safe or risk free.
