You’ve worked hard to build a legacy that you can leave to your loved ones. Preparing your will is an investment in their future.
A valid and up-to-date Will is one of the most important legal documents you’ll create in your lifetime. This essential legal document explains your wishes and how you’d like them carried out after you die.
Your last Will and Testament (your Will) is a legal document that expresses your intentions and dictates how your assets are to be distributed after your death.
In order to be legally valid, a Will must be properly drafted and executed in accordance with the law in SA. Assistance from a lawyer is strongly recommended to ensure your estate is distributed in accordance with your wishes. We recommend having a lawyer assist as it will reduce costs that may incur when a ‘homemade’ Will is cobbled together or if you pass away without a Will in place all together.
Wills can be very complicated or very simple depending on the nature of a person’s assets, whether or not they have complex family issues, Trusts or companies and how many different people they want their estate to go to. We recommend hiring a lawyer to help you navigate through the complexities of your Will.
A Will is one of the most important documents you’ll need to create in your lifetime. Start the process of creating your Will today.
