Rebecca D’Arcy is a member of The Society of Will Writers and adheres to its Code of Practice. The Society of Will Writers is a non-profit-making, self-regulatory organisation which seeks to protect the public and serve the interests of active professionals in the field of Will writing.
The Society of Will Writers was founded in 1994 and has grown to become not only the largest, but also the leading self-regulatory body governing Will Writers and Estate Planners alike. The Society has over 1,600 members across the UK and further afield.
Aims of the Society of Will Writers
- To promote to the public the real need for each adult to have a valid Will; and
- To act as a self-regulatory body, by vetting practitioners through stringent membership requirements, proficiency standards and ongoing professional training.
It is vital to choose someone to make your Will who is competent, professional and has the appropriate expertise and experience. All members of the Society go through a stringent vetting procedure and continuing professional training, to ensure that they are suitable to write a Will properly. Anyone can call themselves a “Will writer”, but only a properly trained professional can ensure that a person’s Will is correctly drafted. Making a home-made or badly drafted Will can be even more problematic than having no Will at all, so SWW would always recommend that your Will is professionally drafted to avoid potential problems after death.
