Wrigleys follows a new code of practice for Will writers

04 April 2014

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

For more information about Wills, please contact Philip Nelson on 0113 204 5739 (Leeds) or Lynne Bradey on 0114 267 5584 (Sheffield)

Both Philip and Lynne are full members of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP). Please contact us for a full list of Wrigleys’ solicitors who are members of STEP
