5 Reasons you need a will and testament:

1. Protect Your Family

If any of your heirs are under 18, their inheritance will be paid into the Guardian’s Fund meaning the government is in control of their monies until they reach majority. Prevent this by making the necessary provisions in your will.

2. Control How Your Wealth is Allocated

Without a will your estate will be distributed in accordance with the intestate succession act which might not be in accordance with your wishes at all.

3. Appoint an Estate Executor

In an intestate estate, ALL the heirs must nominate and agree to a person who will be appointed as an executor. This process can delay an estate tremendously.

4. Prevent Delays

Without your wishes clearly set out in a will, there can be disagreement among the heirs which will delay the estate.  Big disagreements can even lead to court cases which can deplete your estate’s funds. These intestate estates take years to be finalised.

5. Because Death is Hard Enough

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things a person must go through. The last thing you want them to do is have the added pressure of uncertainty and possible conflict in the family if a disagreement arises.
