Last Will and Testament

Last Will and Testament

Your Last Will and Testament is probably one of the most important documents that you can draft during your lifetime. By making a Will you ensure that your assets are disposed of in accordance to your wishes after your death.

The attorneys at Hough & Bremner have the necessary specialist knowledge and expertise to ensure that your Will is valid and complies with your wishes, and ensures that the administration of your estate is hassle free.

In the event that you do not have a Last Will & Testament upon death, what happens to your estate?

The estate will be administrated in terms of the Law of Intestate Succession;

  • Your intestate beneficiaries include your next-of-kin;
  • The inheritance will devolve upon beneficiaries you may not have wished to inherit or
  • Exclude beneficiaries you may have preferred to inherit;
  • Minor beneficiaries inheritance will be paid into the Guardians Fund and held until they reach majority.

Our firm has a deceased estates department that has been established over many years and specialises in , Trusts, Estate Planning, Administration of Estates and many more services.
