About us

WAUGH & CO was established in 1840 in Cuckfield and subsequently moved to 33 Boltro Road Haywards Heath where it flourished for over a century before moving to new offices a few doors away at 3 Heath Square Boltro Road.

The founders of the firm were C H Waugh and E J Waugh who between them held most of the prominent positions in the town including the post of Registrar of Births Marriages and Deaths and Clerk to the County Court and Magistrates Court. They were closely involved in the formation of the Haywards Heath and District Building Society and in the early days acted for the Cuckfield Rural District Council.

The original founders of the Firm laid the foundations of a practice which has since been pleased to serve generations of Clients from Mid Sussex and from further afield.

Our aim is to provide all our Clients whether private or corporate with a Professional efficient and friendly service.

During its existence the Practice has developed its expertise in all dealings with Residential and Commercial Property. There are four fee earners in our Property department experienced in Freehold and Leasehold Property of all types.

We can also offer three fee earners with specialist knowledge in the Administration of Estates and Trusts and the preparation of Wills and new Trusts. This work has enabled us to acquire an extensive knowledge of Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax.

We are able to offer Inheritance Tax planning advice and are always happy to work with a Client's Accountant or other Financial adviser.

An increasing part of the day to day work of our Probate and Trusts Department involves the management of Clients affairs often via a Power of Attorney. We are always willing to visit elderly or infirm Clients at their home if necessary on a regular basis and can offer a tailor made service to suit an individual Client's requirements.

Although the Firm enjoys the benefit of a modern and sophisticated Computer system we still strive to maintain the core values of integrity and Client Care established by the original founders of the firm.
