Death is inevitable, therefore it's wise to plan ahead by having a will to ensure that your last wishes are carried out and your estate is distributed accordingly.
Every person has an estate consisting of all money and property owned and registered in their name. What happens to ones estate upon death, will depend on whether the person has made their wishes known in a Will, failing which, the deceased estate will have to be dissolved or ‘wound up’ by the Master of the High Court in terms of the Administration of Estates Act and the Intestate Succession Act.
Amendments must comply with the same requirements as noted above and if the Testator/Testatrix cannot write, then a Commissioner of Oaths must certify that he/she has satisfied himself/herself as to the identity of the Testator/Testatrix.
