Additional Information

“A deceased estate comes into existence when a person dies leaving the property or a document which is a will or purports to be a will. Such estate must then be administered and distributed in terms of the deceased’s will or failing a valid will, in terms of the Intestate Succession Act, 81 of 1987.” 

What happens to a person’s estate when he or she dies?

“At death the estate of the deceased person is frozen, and no-one may withdraw funds from the deceased’s bank accounts or deal with any of the estate assets without the necessary permission from the Master of the High Court.  If the deceased was married in community of property, the joint estate is frozen.  This situation often creates a hardship for the surviving spouse, especially where the bank accounts were all in the name of the joint estate or in the name of the deceased.”

"My sincere thanks to Mr . Zeiler for coming to my rooms. My heartfelt appreciation of the excellent service rendered by Caroline & her colleagues. The professionalism, clarity of communication and reassurances that my money would be in a shariah compliant account gave me & my family peace of mind."
