DOES MY SA WILL COVER MY UK ASSETS?

faq-top-bg

Yes, a Worldwide Will works very well if you live in South Africa but have assets in a country with similar heirship laws to our own, such as the UK. Like South Africa, the UK has freedom of testation.

 

It’s important to have appropriate Wills drafted to suitably protect your Estate and heirs. You can either have multiple Wills for each jurisdiction that you have assets in, or you can draft a Worldwide Will to cover assets in different countries that have the same inheritance laws as SA.

 

While certain countries follow the same rights of inheritance that South Africa recognises, there are others that are vastly different.  However, a Worldwide Will or an offshore Will can protect your Estate if you’re intending to relocate or if you’re thinking of buying property abroad.
