The affordable education loan option
Cape Town - Members of the public will have the opportunity to draw up their wills free of charge during National Wills week from October 7 to 11.
Practising attorneys throughout the country will be participating.
Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) co-chairpersons Kathleen Matolo-Dlepu and David Bekker said a valid will allowed you to state who should inherit your assets and property.
“A valid will allows you to appoint an executor of your choice for your estate and also a guardian for your minor children.
“By ensuring that you have a valid will you, as the testator, can protect the interests of your loved ones and ensure that there is no delay in settling your estate after your death.
“It also ensures that your executor will act according to your wishes as set out in your will.”
Attorneys participating in the National Wills week initiative will display posters with their contact details so members of the public can make appointments with attorneys in their area.
In addition, the contact details of all participating attorneys can be accessed on the LSSA website at www.LSSA.org.za.
