Drafting of Your Will
The best way to ensure that after your death your assets are distributed according to your wishes and instructions is to draw up a Will. This gives you the opportunity to appoint an Executor to deal with your assets. If you die without a valid will, your family might suffer inconvenience and even severe hardship. Where a person dies without leaving a valid will, the estate will devolve in accordance with the Intestate Succession Act. We at Benaters are specialists in the drafting of simple and complex Wills and the administration of deceased estates which is also known as probate.
