In addition to the existing controls on solicitors, there will shortly be additional protection for the public. From 1 November, beneficiaries under a will where a solicitor is executor will be able to ask the Law Society for an independent check on the bill if there is a difference of view over the fairness of the solicitor's charges.
When making their will, therefore, members of the public can confidently appoint solicitors as executors.
