ADMINISTRATION OF DECEASED ESTATES
When a person dies, with or without a will, his/her estate must be reported to the Master of the High Court. The procedure followed will be dependent on whether the deceased left a will or not. The aim of administration of an estate is to transfer the deceased’s property to the deceased’s heirs. If the deceased has not left a will his beneficiaries will be determined by the Interstate Succession Act 81 of 1987. Should you wish to ensure that your assets, at the time of your death, are disposed of in terms of your wishes then it is essential to have a will drafted.
