Public 'should contact MPs over will regulation'

Public 'should contact MPs over will regulation'

Adults across Britain have been urged to play their role in raising awareness of the need for greater levels of regulation in the will writing sector.

The Law Society - which represents solicitors across all sectors in England and Wales - has called upon people to be more proactive in their efforts to make sure officials are properly qualified to act through getting in touch with their local MPs.

Linda Lee, president of the organisation, stated that at present anybody can become a will writer and added that employing unqualified parties to complete such an important task is not advisable.

She explained that by raising the issue with MPs, people may influence the Lord Chancellor into making a legislative change.

"We want MPs to recognise the damage that the absence of regulation causes and give MPs a way of publicly showing their support for reform in this area," Ms Lee added.
