Whilst the government do not see the need for statutory regulation they do feel that it is important to promote the need for a Will and Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) and all of our members are behind them.
As part of the SWW’s work with the Legal Services Board (LSB) we are continuing to promote the need for these services through consumer education. We have launched the first of a wave of videos to enable the public to understand what products they are buying.
The MoJ scheme, Choice Not Chance is promoting the same messages.
As such we are urging everyone without these essential documents to consider their importance. It is also important to consider what would happen to you or your family if something happened to you…
When it comes to having the documents created, Members of the Society of Will Writers (SWW) are checked to ensure that they are competently trained and insured to carry out the estate planning that they do. They adhere to a strict code of practice that supports the transparency and advancement of the profession.
Don’t leave it to chance… Make a choice. #choicenotchance
