How do I get executorship?


Application for Letters of Executorship needs to be made at the Master of the High Court in the Province where the deceased individual resided for the 12 months prior to passing away, or where the deceased had immovable property.

Should the Estate value be more than R 250 000 the Master of the High Court will require that a professional body such as a bank or fiduciary company assist with the administration as there are certain requirements that need to be submitted to have the Estate finalised.
