Based in Eastbourne, Hailsham and Polegate, Hart Reade are Solicitors in East Sussex who will advise you on making a Will. This is a really important document to create and so many people just never get around to it. Writing a will is always something that you always put off, as you can do it another day, but it is a simple procedure and could avoid lots of heartache and distress to those left behind if you die unexpectedly.
We will also advise you upon the opportunities for setting up simple Trusts and other devices to limit potential liability for any possible Inheritance Tax.

advise on the appropriate family or friends to do this. Where required, the partners of Hart Reade solicitors are happy to act as Executors.
Writing a Will enables you to set down what you wish to happen to your assets when you die. An important aspect to writing a will, especially for anyone who dies unexpectedly is to make a provision as to what will happen to your children and how they will be zrovided for. Wills must be in writing and properly witnessed and there are many strict rules about its contents and the way in which it must be completed.
What happens if I die without making a will?
If you die without a Will, or leave a Will which is incomplete or invalid, the law provides what happens to your estate. If you are married, it does not necessarily follow that the whole of your estate goes to your spouse. “Common Law” partners are not recognised at all. We may also be able to help protect your Will from being contested later.
Failure to make a Will can cause much heartache and unhappiness for those who survive you as well as leading to unexpected results. There is a great reassurance for you and your loved ones in setting out your wishes plainly within a Will.
