The Institute of Professional Willwriters (IPW) was founded in 1991 as a self-regulatory body to safeguard the public from unqualified practitioners and unethical business practices and has become established as the recognised professional body regulating and promoting the profession of Willwriting in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Membership is available only to those who pass the IPW entrance examination, or who possess an equivalent and relevant qualification in Wills and Estates from a recognised qualifying body such as the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, or the Institute of Legal Executives. For more information about our entry criteria, please see our Training and Examination booklet here.

Members are required to update their knowledge and skills annually through a programme of Continuing Professional Development in order to retain their practising certificate.

All IPW members have Professional Indemnity Insurance cover of a minimum of £2 million, for each Will written and it is mandatory for them to comply with the IPW Code of Practice which is approved by the Trading Standards Institute under its Consumer Codes Approval Scheme.
