How do I prove I am the executor of an estate?


You can prove you are the Executor of an Estate by using the Letter of Executorship/Authority, as granted by the Master of the High Court.

There are two manners through which someone can be nominated to become an Executor:

  • The deceased could nominate you in their Last Will and Testament as the Executor of his/her Estate.

  • If a deceased individual does not have a Last Will and Testament or has not nominated an Executor, the nominated Beneficiaries could nominate someone to become the Executor.
