The administration of deceased estates. The following are the main formalities that an Executor has to observe: 1.A Death Notice and Inventory of the deceased’s assets are completed at the time the death is reported. These documents together with the original Will and Death Certificate are lodged with the Master of the High Court. 2.If the person nominated as Executor in the Will is prepared to accept the appointment, he/she must do so in writing. The Master will appoint an Executive where there is no will or the nominated Executor declines to act. 3.In due course (approx six to eight weeks), the Master will issue the Letters of Executorship. The Executor will then have the necessary authorisation to proceed with the liquidation formalities and to take custody of the estate property and records. 4.The Executor must then advertise, in the Government Gazette and in one or more local newspapers) a notice calling creditors to lodge their claims within a stipulated period.

5.After the issue of Letters of Executorship, an Executor must take steps to determine the true value of all property in the estate. 6.The Executor will then proceed to realise sufficient estate assets to cover the debts, administration expenses and any estate duty. 7.The Executor is responsible for the lodging of the final income tax return to date of death including the capital gains tax return. 8.The next step is the preparation of the Executor’s Liquidation and Distribution Account and the Estate Duty Return. 9.This account is then lodged with the Master of the High Court for examination. It could take some weeks before approval of the account is obtained from the Master. 10.Once the Liquidation and Distribution Account has passed the inspection period free from objections, the Executor is in a position to pay the creditors and distribute the available assets amongst the heirs. 11.The winding-up of the estate will take between 9-12 months, from date of receiving the Letters of Executorship.
