In order for will writing to become regulated, it is likely that primary legislation would be required. In order for will writing to become a reserved activity under the Legal Services Act 2007 (LSA), secondary legislation would be required.
Since the Legal Services Board (LSB) is currently investigating whether or not it would be in the interests of the legal consumer to regulate will writing, it will be more appropriate to await the outcome of that investigation before making an assessment of next steps. Although the activity itself is not regulated, under the LSA authorised persons that provide will writing services, like solicitors, are regulated by their approved regulator.
