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?
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.
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
