The Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS) provides a best practice quality mark for wills and estate administration advice that consumers can trust.
The scheme design (PDF 147kb) is based on a Wills and Inheritance Protocol (PDF 360kb) that sets client service standards to ensure transparency in process, costs and communications. It outlines required practices for will drafting, probate and estate administration to help address common risks, errors and inconsistencies that arise in delivering advice.
WIQS is designed for practices that are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and offer both wills and probate/estate administration advice.
Practices applying for accreditation must demonstrate compliance with the Wills and Inheritance Protocol and, where necessary can amend existing policies or draft new ones to meet the requirements.
Help prospective clients to make a confident and informed choice of local legal practice. Show that you follow best practice procedures to meet the highest standards of technical expertise and client service.
See the apply for WIQS page for full details on how to apply.
Practices only specialising in wills, or only probate/estate administration, are not eligible to apply for the scheme.
