A Last Will in any of the 11 Languages of South Africa


DO YOU WANT TO MAKE THE CHOICE OF WHERE YOUR ASSETS MUST GO
AFTER YOUR DEATH? OR WILL THE GOVERNMENT DECIDE FOR YOU?

Disadvantages of dying without a Will

  • The court could appoint someone you do not approve of to be your executor.
  • Your estate will be dealt with according to a rigid and inflexible law – you can't leave a specific item to someone who would really have benefited from it, or decide on the proportions your beneficiaries will get.
  • Your minor childrens inheritance might disappear, since anything they are entitled to
  • receive, will have to be transferred into monetary form and saved? in the Guardians Fund of the government, until they turn 18 years of age. This means that the family home would have to be sold which is quite problematic for your children.
  • With all the fraudulent syndicates operating in South Africa at the moment, your money and assets will more than likely fall into their hands instead of going to the people you love and who are dearest to you.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A WILL

Sometimes, we are reluctant to con-template our own mortality, and sometimes we feel that by providing for death we are somehow inviting it closer. Many very responsible people still leave their estate matters to pure chance, believing that their immediate family will automatically inherit everything. This can lead to unnecessary delays in the administration of the estate and the potential for added trauma and conflict at the very time that the family is already suffering from the stress of dealing with the loss of a loved one. If you die without leaving a Will, the beneficiaries will be determined according to legislation – the Law of In-testate Succession. Essentially, the law determines who the closest blood relatives are and distributes the as-sets in terms of this. The correct people will not necessarily get the money and assets due to them, especially with all the fraud taking place in our world.

Disadvantages for the institution if a member/employee dies without a will

The very next day after the person dies, the whole family will be at the offices of the institution/company asking for help and money. The problems of trying to pay out any funds to the rightful family member/s are without doubt cumbersome. The time needed to arrange the settlement of the estate without an appointed executor is nearly impossible. There can be a dispute on where the person must be buried. You have to handle the family feuds. You have no way to claim against the estate if needed. This all cost time and money

The Solution and how it works?

  • Create a will in your own language for as little as R15 excl vat per month and get the administration of the estate free of charge, for any estate which has less than R250 000 worth of assets. The larger estates will be administered by professional executors for less than specified by law.
  • TUMELLANO appoints a professional executor, near to the family to handle the estate and give the correct assets and monies to the correct people, according to the wishes of the deceased person.
  • TUMELLANO appoints a trust for the minor children, and will make sure that they get a monthly fee paid from the money and assets left in the will.
  • The testator specifies where he/she must be buried – no fights!
  • We send a positive message to every testator every morning – non-religious
  • We give you free of charge an APP to with a wallet as a payment method
