Making a will is something people often do not wish to contemplate, however, making one is a good idea.
It enables you to
a) choose how your assets will be distributed
b) identify who will act as your executor (the person who takes care of your estate),
c) nominate who might be guardian to your minor children
d) provide for your dependents and plan for inheritance tax.
If you do not make a will, your estate will be determined in accordance with the rules set out in the 1965 Succession Act and making arrangements to change such an outcome – by way of family arrangement – can be complex, expensive and time consuming.
