General Information

Why is a Will such an important document?

What happens to your assets and liabilities after your death? Will you have sufficient funds to care for your family? What are the implications surrounding liquidity of your Estate and your tax obligations? Will the persons that you want to inherit your Estate, receive their inheritance? Who will be the guardian of your minor children?


Important factors to be taken into account include:

• Having a valid will and the practical implications thereof.
• Choice of Executor
• Without a valid will your heirs will be appointed in terms of the Law of Intestate Succession.
• Cash flow in your Estate
• Estate Duty to be paid
• Whether all documentation is in place in the event of you passing away.
