Interview with Brandon Garbutt on Hot 91.9FM
In his latest interview on Hot 91.9FM our MD, Brandon Garbutt shares how to go about ensuring you have a valid Will drafted. This important conversation sheds light on why it’s vital to have an updated and valid Last Will and Testament in place and how easy we have made it to have your Will drafted.
Brandon also explains how seeing the lack of sufficient life cover clients have when winding up estates led to a natural progression for Capital Legacy to introduce a Life Cover solution called MyCoverTM.
Tony Blewitt and our CEO, Alex Simeonides, discuss the cost of dying and executorship
Did you know that there are numerous unexpected costs and legal fees associated with dying, including Executor fees, taxes, immediate expenses (funeral, groceries, travel) and more?
Listen to our latest live interview on MixFM. Tony Blewitt and our CEO, Alex Simeonides, discuss these costs of dying, executorship and how to ensure that your family is protected through our Legacy Protection Plan™ which accompanies your Will to protect your family from this burden.
What would happen when you are suddenly no longer there to look after your children? Who would take on the parental mantle you leave behind and who would make sure that any inheritance you have accumulated for your children is actually received by them and managed properly to their benefit? What many parents don’t realise is that they leave their children’s inheritances at the mercy of the Government Guardian’s Fund when they don’t make the proper provisions for the possibility that their children may face tomorrow without them. When children lose both their parents, they and their inheritances become wards of the high court.
Society has this common misperception that you only need to draft a will when you have excess wealth and lots of assets – but your will does so much more. Not only do you include in your will who inherits what, but also who should be your children’s guardian(s) as well as how the money and assets you leave to them should be managed – ensuring that the inheritance you leave to your children are managed efficiently, compassionately and with competence.

‘Girlfriend’ loses fight for husband’s estate – was it really necessary?
We spend all our time trying to create wealth and building our legacies for our loved ones, and yet so few people dedicate any time to estate planning that creates clarity and certainty for when we’re gone.
Recently, the Pretoria High Court ruled against an applicant’s request to acknowledge her as the rightful heir to her long-time partner’s estate. In this specific case, the deceased was married to his estranged wife through a customary marriage, but they never officially divorced, leaving little room for the applicant, who had been sharing a life with him for 13 years, to be considered as a spouse.
