Wills

The importance of having a will.

Many people believe that their family will automatically inherit all their belongings when they pass away and therefore think a will is of no importance. By not having a will your chances are increased that there will be delays in the administration of the estate as the estate will be divided according to the intestate Succession Act. You will have no say in the person being appointed as Executor as the court will make this decision. The estate will be divided between intestate heirs. Any minor heir’s inheritance will be reduced to cash and kept in the Guardians fund of the Master of the High Court until the heir turns 18 years old.

Why your attorney should draft your will:

Your attorney has an overview and understanding of the Wills act and all relevant legislation. Any legal problem that may arise will immediately be recognizable. When required, your attorney will be able to prepare the necessary documents speedily and effectively attend to the administration process. Where no will is drafted the estate could face delays and unnecessary expenses.
