Our estate administration process
THE FAMILY BEGINS THE PROCESS
The Family begins the process. We are informed of the Client’s passing.
The Claims process begins where an Estate Consultant is allocated.
WE SET UP AN APPOINTMENT
We contact the Heirs to set up an appointment.
The Master’s office recommends reporting to the Estate within 14 days of death.
MEETING WITH FAMILY
At the meeting we get the relevant documentation and signatures.
HAND OVER TO THE ADMINISTRATOR
We open the Estate file and check if all requirements listed are met.
Go to the Master of the High Court and submit the application for LOE.
The Master’s Office examines the documents and issues a query sheet for more documents or issues the LOE.
The Administrator prepares the Liquidation and Distribution (L&D) Account and has meetings to discuss the late Estate with the Client’s Beneficiaries and Heirs.
L&D ACCEPTANCE REQUIRED
We submit the L&D to the Master for approval.
AWAIT TRANSFERS & TAX COLLECTIONS
Once approval is obtained, we place a Section 35 advertisement, and lodge a copy of the L&D Account at the local Magistrate’s Court which lies open for inspection for 21 days.
Taxes are paid, creditors are settled, and transfers are made.
Final distribution takes place when the Heirs & Beneficiaries are paid.
FILING SLIP REQUIRED
When the Filing Slip is obtained from the Master of the High Court, we have permission to close the file.
