The simple answer to the question ‘Are WillWriters Legal?’ is yes, wills produced by professional will writers are legal but the question you should ask: Is the will writer I am using experienced and qualified to give me expert advice about Wills, Trusts, Inheritance Tax Planning, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Business continuation Planning and all other areas of Estate Planning?
Owner of The WillMaker Group, James Walker, answers this question below:
‘I have now been involved in the Will Writing industry for over 5 years and have been successfully running my own professional Norfolk Will Writing and Estate Planning Business for 3 years.
My company The WillMaker Group are full members of the Society of Will Writers, the largest self-regulatory body within the industry. Our consultants have undertaken various courses within the Estate Planning industry including Will writing and Estate Planning diploma, Drafting of Wills, Trusts, Taxation of trusts, Inheritance Tax, Vulnerable Clients & Later life planning & Lasting Powers of Attorney to name a few. We are members of the Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners (STEP) having undertaken their Certificate in Financial Services, Trusts and Estate Planning. This ensures our knowledge is up to date and of the highest standards within the industry.
My own personal ethos which is at the forefront of our company, is that I want all our clients to be treated the same way as if they were part of our families and to receive outstanding quality and the highest service available.
So hopefully the above gives everyone confidence that we are very knowledgeable on all thigs Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Inheritance Tax and Estate Planning.’
