Consumers back will writing standards

The Consumer Association (CA) is backing the Law Society's call for regulation of will writing as the society prepares to launch Make a Will Week. A survey highlights the problems faced by will-writing companies which struggle when legacies are not “run of the mill”. The report emphasises the advantages of using solicitors who are professionally trained, statutorily regulated, insured and who store wills free of charge. Make a Will Week starts on 17 October.
