Other will writing professionals and their liability?

It has been is well established since the case of White v Jones 1995 that a Solicitor can be negligent for errors made when drafting a will. However what is the position for other WILL drafting professionals such has banks, IFA’s, Accountants and also ‘WILL writers’ who advertise cut down prices to draft a WILL in newspapers.

If the WILL subject to the potential negligence was not drafted by a Solicitor, the individual/professional firm who drafted the WILL may have similar professional responsibilities to a Solicitor. If they are negligent you can pursue them for a claim so long has they have professional indemnity insurance or have sufficient assets if they do not hold professional indemnity insurance.

Examples of WILL drafting negligence:

  • Delay in drafting a WILL (upon being instructed to do so)
  • Negligent WILL drafting (not giving effect to what you/deceased intended)
  • Negligent WILL Execution

If you consider that your Solicitor or other will drafting professional has ”˜let you down’ and been negligent when drafting or executing a will, causing you financial loss you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
