A document determining how your assets will be distributed after you die. A will is one of the most important documents in your estate plan, as you can include detailed instructions about who will benefit from your estate.
What is a Will?
What happens if you don’t have a Will?
The state will appoint an executor to close up your estate. This could mean that people can inherit from your estate even if you did not appoint them as heirs.
Why do you want one?
- Determine how your assets will be distributed to your loved ones once you’re no longer there to take care of them
- Detailed instruction on who will benefit from your estate
- Protect assets for minor children
- Provide for your dependents
- Ensure efficient administration of the estate
- Reduce estate duty
Do you need it?
Yes, most adults need a will. You need a will if you:
- Are married
- Have children
- Own property and assets
Anyone over the age of 16 can write a will.
How much does it cost?
Most financial services and law firms offer estate planning. The cost of a will starts around R500 and increases as the will becomes more complex.
