A simple and cost effective Will ensures you leave your estate in tidy and organised fashion.

Friendly and Professional Service

Very professional and friendly service provided by Sussex Will Writers. Steve Worsfold visited us and gave excellent advice and also provided us with a Commentary in plain English outlining the various clauses and how these would instruct our Executors to carry out our wishes after we had died. Also it included the complex “nil rate band” and its effect on property. An excellent and swift service undertaken within two weeks and I would recommend him unequivocally.
