LSB announces next steps in protection of Will Writing consumers
In September 2012 the Legal Services Board (LSB) announced the next steps in delivering greater protection to consumers of Will Writing, Probate and Estate Administration services. The LSB aims to ensure appropriate protection, including access to redress, to all consumers and are going to make recommendations to the Lord Chancellor early this year. It is likely their recommendations will include some form of regulation for the profession.
Fitzgibbons and Company Ltd trading as The Will Writing Service welcome any future legislation designed to protect consumers from ‘rogue traders’ and as members of the Society of Will Writers already adhere to their strict Code of Practice.
