Wrigleys follows a new code of practice for Will writers
A new Code that came into force on 1 April 2014, has been introduced to help protect members of the public seeking advice on a Will.
Will writing is not a regulated activity in England & Wales, so anyone can set themselves up as a will writer and charge a fee regardless of training or experience.
This Code, introduced by The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) helps the public to differentiate between people offering a Will service. Many of Wrigleys solicitors are full members of STEP and so can offer this service.
Through a series of ethical principles the Code demonstrates a standard of transparency and service that a client can expect from a STEP member preparing their will.
The range of standards that practitioners must adhere to under the Code include:
- avoiding conflicts of interest
- clearly explaining cost implications to clients and
- managing clients’ private information appropriately
