PRESS RELEASE: Raising Professional Standards in Estate Planning

We are delighted to announce that Beneficial Trust & Will Co Ltd are now fully accredited members of the Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW) in recognition of our firm operating to the highest professional standards.

The IPW was founded in 1991 as a self-regulatory body to safeguard the public from unqualified practitioners and unethical business practices and has become established as a professional body regulating and promoting the profession of will writing in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

All IPW member organisations are mandated to comply with the IPW Code of Practice which is approved by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute under it’s Consumer Codes Approval Scheme. This provides clients with further peace of mind that services are provided by a qualified and skilled team of Estate Planning practitioners carrying comprehensive professional indemnity insurance.

We continue to value our Society of Will Writers accreditation and are one of the few firms within the UK operating dual membership of both leading organisations along with a legal team approved by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority.

Director of Operations, Amy Peters commented

“Clients can obtain Estate Planning and Will Writing services in a number of ways but compliance with a rigorous code of conduct such as that of the IPW and the Chartered Trading Standards Institute provides assurance that clients legal rights are clearly outlined and upheld.

Unfortunately, we have seen less scrupulous traders attempt to enter this profession and it is our intention to be able to provide a clear route for clients to access services that are delivered to the highest professional standards.

We are absolutely thrilled to have successfully completed the IPW compliance process and hope this goes to further display our commitment to the delivery of the highest customer service standards.”
