Who should have a will?


If any of the following circumstances are applicable to you, it may be necessary to have a will or review your existing will:

  • Recently married, divorced or widowed
  • Had a baby or adopted a child
  • Lost a spouse, child, parent or a sibling
  • Purchased a fixed property
  • Experienced a change in your personal or financial situation
  • Received an inheritance

Why you should have a will


A will enables you to:

  • Choose who should benefit from your estate
  • Protect the interests of heirs, including the nomination of a guardian for minor children and/or a professional trustee to administer their inheritance
  • Nominate an executor of your choice, thus avoiding the delays involved in the appointment of an executor

What if there is no will?


  • Delays in the administration of your estate
  • The beneficiaries of your estate will be determined according to legislation
  • The court could appoint someone you would not have approved of to be your executor
  • Cannot leave specific items to chosen beneficiaries
  • If you have no immediate family, distant relatives will inherit rather than close friends or a life partner
  • Your minor child's inheritance will have to be transferred in a monetary form to the Guardian's Fund until they reach the age of 18 years

What is an executor?


  • The executor is the person or institution nominated in your will and whom the Master of the High Court will appoint to administer your estate.
  • The executor is entitled to charge a fee for their services.
    • This fee is set by legislation and is amended from time to time.
    • This fee is currently 3.5% of the gross value of your estate plus VAT.
  • In a will, you can only nominate an executor. The Master of the High Court needs to approve the nomination and then officially appoint the executor.

A guardian for your child


Must you name a guardian for a child?

  • You should always name a guardian for a child who is a minor
  • A guardian ensures that the child is cared for by someone that you trust, to raise the child in the same manner as you would.

When nominating a guardian, please consider

  • Location: If a guardian is not resident in the same city, it may cause stress for the child if removed from a familiar environment.
  • Finances: Will accepting guardianship place a burden on finances?
  • Child's choice: Will your child feel secure with the guardian?
  • Guardian's age: If the child is young he/she will have to be cared for by the guardian until the age of 18.
  • Separate guardians: Do not nominate separate guardians for each child – they must be stay together.
  • Unmarried guardians: Do not nominate guardians to act together if they are unmarried. Children cannot be split between households.

What others need to know about your will


Nominating a guardian

  • Location: If a guardian is not resident in the same city, it may cause stress for the child if removed from a familiar environment.
  • Finances: Will accepting guardianship place a burden on finances?
  • Child's choice: Will your child feel secure with the guardian?
  • Guardian's age: If the child is young he/she will have to be cared for by the guardian until the age of 18.
  • Separate guardians: Do not nominate separate guardians for each child - they must be stay together.
  • Unmarried guardians: Do not nominate guardians to act together if they are unmarried. Children cannot be split between households.

What is a living will?


The purpose of a living will is to record your wishes regarding life support and artificial means of keeping you alive.

It is completely separate from your last will and testament.

A living will does not advocate euthanasia but simply removes the burden of making a difficult decision to switch off life support, from the family.
