Will Writing NOT To Be Regulated

Over the last few years the LSB (Legal Services Board) have tried to recommend that the process of Will Writing should be a reserved activity. This would mean making a Will is something only a solicitor could do.

The good news for the public is that yesterday the Lord Chancellor decided it would NOT be in the best interests of the consumer to regulate Will Writing. This means greedy high street solicitors will not have a monopoly on the will writing industry, and will have to continue to keep their fees in line with independent and online will writing services.
