Presenters : Carmen Westermeyer


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.
