Deceased Estates: Overview

Dealing with death and assets is always a challenging affair. From ensuring that the assets are distributed as intended to dealing with the administrative realities of winding up an estate, we need to ensure that the paperwork is correct. In particular, executors of an estate need to understand how wills and intestate succession work to ensure that the wishes of the deceased are met. Executors would also need to ensure that all obligations are met, including the requirements of the master and SARS. The aim of this three-part series is therefore to discuss the requirements of the Administration of Estate Act, the Wills Act, the Intestate Succession Act as well as the tax liabilities of the estate.
