National Wills Week 2017


Let's be honest... nobody likes to talk about death.

It is, however, of crucial importance that people plan for the time of their passing. By having a written and properly executed will and testament, you can have peace of mind that:

  • Your assets will be distributed to your family, friends, and other heirs according to your wishes;

  • Your minor children will be placed in the care and guardianship of people you trust and that your assets will be used to take care of your children's needs throughout their childhood and beyond;

  • An executor of your choosing will be appointed to administer your estate.

National Wills Week is an initiative spearheaded by the Law Society of South Africa. During this week (11 - 15 September 2017) participating attorneys across South Africa provide members of the public with a basic will for free. That's right... it's free, gratis, no strings attached legal services.

Additionally, and even though National Wills Week only applies to basic wills, our office will also draft more complex wills (such as those containing testamentary trusts) at a discounted rate during this week.

All you have to do is contact our office to arrange a suitable time for a consultation. If you're based elsewhere in the country, click on the link below to find a participating attorney near where you live.
