Will Writing

STEP was one of many organisations that supported the regulation of will writing in England and Wales. The UK government, however, called on professional bodies to develop their own codes.

Consequently the STEP Code for Will Preparation in England and Wales came into effect on 1 April 2014.

Subsequent to its initial launch, STEP amended the Will Code in response to suggestions as to how implementation of the Code could be made easier without jeopardising the client protection it offers.
