The Society of Will Writers
Westminster Trust is a member of The Society of Will Writers who represents our governing body.
The Society of Will Writers was established in 1994 as an independent body representing the professional Will Writer and the interests of the consumer. The Society is the largest trade body within our profession and has members throughout the world.
Members of The Society of Will Writers are required to adhere to their strict code of practice, ethical standards and philosophy which puts the consumer foremost to ensure that through our membership you receive the very best of service. Members of The Society of Will Writers are required to hold and prove that they hold two million pounds of Professional Indemnity Insurance.
It is unadvisable to make a Last Will & Testament or obtain any other Estate Planning products from a source that is not a member of a professional body such as The Society of Will Writers or a practicing Solicitor.
The advantage of choosing to use a member of The Society of Will Writers is that it is likely to be substantially cost effective then using the services of a Solicitor. In addition members of The Society of Will Writers are Will Writing specialists and not general legal practitioners who spend much of their time litigating and buying houses for their Clients.
Solicitors are not averse to allowing people making their own Wills as they make more money out of sorting out the mess which many DIY Wills leave behind. Members of The Society of Will Writers don’t have this conflict of interest. Members deal almost exclusively with one area of law – succession planning – and as such, are best placed to offer specialist advice which ensures you receive the advice which is best for you.
