As an established firm specialising in Wills, Estate Planning and Business Succession Planning, we work closely with affinity groups and professional advisers throughout the home counties to ensure that individuals and businesses are fully informed about the impact of new legislation and how best to protect themselves.
Our consultants will visit you in the comfort of your own home or office. Our fees are clearly stated and only payable when we take your instructions. All consultants are either Members or Affiliates of the Society of Will Writers and Estate Planning Practitioners or STEP qualified, or both. We also have access to inhouse Solicitors to deal with specific instructions, including Probate and Conveyancing.
Our activities are regulated by the Society of Will Writers and Estate Planning Practitioners, and your interests are protected by £2,000,000 Comprehensive Professional Indemnity Insurance.
The Society of Will Writers
The Society of Will Writers established in 1994 exists to set a high standard of Will Writing, to maintain and uphold that standard in order to promote good practice and the protection of our clients in legal terms. C.J.H. as a full member of the Society of Will Writers pays into a fund upon application to the Society for the benefit of their future clients and consumer protection.
The Society of Will Writers guarantees that in the event of serious or critical illness; death or bankruptcy that any client who has paid for work will have their contract fulfilled.
This is what makes SWW members ‘safe to do business with’.
Entry to The Society demands impeccable, high level application to the needs of those desirous of making their last wishes known so that there is no possibility of any misunderstanding or miscarriage of justice to the detriment of their appointed heirs or legatees.
The prestige of The Society is the collective standing of all its members. The designatory letters of The Society are the assurance to clients, employers, associates and the public at large that the man or woman who is entitled to them is a person of ability and integrity. Members of the SWW are approved by Trading Standards and a member of their ‘Buy with Confidence’ scheme.
We attend regular meetings of the Society and other institutions and avail ourselves of continuous training. We also attend courses to maintain this standard and obtain the relevant certificate of Continuing Professional development.
