BBC Sussex “Sound Advice

Head of Wills, Trusts and Probate, Tom Callaghan, appeared as a legal expert on the Allison Ferns radio show on BBC Sussex on 22nd May, answering listeners’ calls on Wills and Inheritance, talking about the importance of Wills and the recent changes to the intestacy laws (ie where a person dies without a Will) in the new Inheritance and Trustees’ Powers Act 2014.

The Act goes some way to simplifying who will inherit where there is no Will, but serves as a reminder that the best way to ensure your wishes are carried out on your death is via a professionally drafted Will.
