Wills

It is our advice that a last will and testament is a must.

A will must comply with specific requirements for its validity otherwise it will not be accepted by the Master of the High Court. Thus a will that is invalid means that the testator (the person who has made the will) has died intestate and his last wishes with regard to distribution of his property and other related matters will not be carried out.

Thus his affairs will be dealt with in terms of the law of intestate succession. In terms of the law of intestate succession, the surviving spouse receives a stipulated amount or a child’s share, whichever is the greater. This means that children especially may receive very little or nothing at all.

We also draft wills and testaments free of charge for persons over the age of sixty years.
