You have worked hard to build financial security and freedom for yourself and those dear to you, but what will happen to your estate when you pass away?

A will ensures that when you die your wishes are carried out

We will help you draft a will that ensures your wishes are carried out legally,
that your loved ones are taken care of and that your possessions of
monetary and sentimental value are properly protected and distributed.

Why should I have a will?

A will gives you the opportunity to indicate how and to whom your assets are to be distributed after your death. If you die without a will, your assets may not end up with the people you would have wanted them to. A will also allows you:

  • Comprehensive estate planning suited to your unique needs
  • Easy and comprehensive estate administration
  • Protection and management of your assets
  • Distribution of assets according to your wishes
  • Nomination of the responsible person/institution for winding up your estate (the executor)
  • Nomination of a guardian to look after the affairs of any of your minor children
  • Protection of benefits to beneficiaries by way of a testamentary trust
  • Nomination of the responsible person/institution for administering any testamentary trust (the trustee)
  • Assistance in cases where the testator/testatrix was involved in more than one relationship or marriage
  • Adequate liquidity in the estate to meet commitments during the winding-up period
  • Determining estate duty and other taxes and ensuring that your estate is set up in a tax-efficient way
  • For business owners, to ensure the business succession is in place so that your business continues to run smoothly.
