Thank you .. I / we are grateful for the flexibility shown, especially given the circumstances that my father is in a care home, and was bed ridden on the day of our zoom call.

Excellent service, informative, professional and friendly.

Laura dealt with all matters relating to the granting of probate and winding up of my late husband’s estate with the utmost professionalism and also with sensitivity, making the whole process less daunting for me.

The personal service of actually visiting the client, makes all the difference when they are elderly and hard of sight and hearing.  Laura visited my mother for exactly this purpose and it was much appreciated

We wished to make our Wills but thought it would be a complex matter. Laura made it easy for us. Particularly like the idea of prefilling as many details as possible before meeting with Laura. She then helped us complete any questions that we were stuck on. We had to delay the process… and there was no pressure to complete. Honestly no complaints at all. Thankyou.

Laura was very kind and took the time and made it very easy.

Have used numerous services including Laura’s – always very, very good. Efficient, helpful, professional and expert in nature.

Laura was both professional and compassionate in her interactions with me on the death of my father.

All staff friendly and all phone messages dealt with promptly. Thank you very much.

Our first encounter with Hart Reade was in 2003 when they handled the sale of our home in Hailsham. This was completed with professionalism, friendliness and in a timely manner. Fast forward to 2021 and another continent. When Mum died and I was unable to fly due to COVID, our first choice was Hart Reade. Again everything has been handled with the utmost kindness, promptness and professionalism. First Class communication from the word go has been excellent!  I cannot recommend Laura and her Team highly enough and would not hesitate to instruct Hart Reade again! Thank you!

In an ever-increasing online world, one thing that will never change is that people will still get old and eventually need direct interaction with another person when dealing with important legal matters. My mother is hard of sight and hearing, so it makes all the difference in the world to her when Laura takes the time to drop into her house and explain the forms before signing them. Her house is very local to the Hailsham branch that makes this viable, but the value of such a simple piece of customer service should never be underestimated.

I found the process of rewriting my Will quite traumatic, however, I would like to say that Laura was completely understanding, helpful and appreciated my situation. Her calm attitude gave me confidence and helped me cope with a difficult problem. Thank you Laura!

Laura was, as always, friendly, professional and helpful. The work required was carried out promptly and to required standard. Thank you.

Laura made the process extremely straightforward
