Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Do you mean can a paralegal in a law firm draft a Will or can an unqualified Solicitor draft a Will? Kind Regards Al
Hi, apologies for the delay- I have been driving.
Anybody can paid to draft and execute a Will.
Specialist Will writers are non Solicitors and the only down side with this is that they are not regulated by the Law Society and some do not hold professional indemnity insurance (us Solicitors have to have indemnity insurance, meaning that if we are negligent, and a client makes a claim, they will be covered on our Insurance).
Most people will therefore go and see a Solicitor to make a Will, but there is no law against non Solicitors drafting Wills.
I hope this assists and answers your question.
If I have helped, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
