Estates and Trusts
Goldberg & de Villiers Incorporated, as part of its commitment to offering holistic solutions to clients, and offering their expertise and service in all facets of clients’ interactions with the law, is able to offer a comprehensive service in the important fields of estate planning, administration of deceased estates and trusts.
We have four qualified notaries public and we attend to all aspects of notarial work.
We keep abreast of developments in the law and trends in taxation which is essential to being able to offer a professional service in this field. We are able to develop tailor-made solutions for estate planning, which may involve the formation of trusts, or the drafting of new, tax-efficient, legally sound wills. Giving our clients confidence and peace of mind in this important aspect of their personal planning is our priority.
The administration of deceased estates is itself a complex process, and Goldberg & de Villiers Incorporated has a dedicated team, specialising in this process. Death is a difficult time for all concerned and few are equipped to cope with all the legal and financial consequences of death. It takes professionals with a sound, working knowledge and expertise in the winding up of deceased estates, to guide the process, from reporting the estate to the Master of the High Court, through the exacting procedures prescribed by law, to the final distribution of the estate to the beneficiaries.
What clients need, especially, is the assurance that their loved one’s affairs are being dealt with by experts who also have the “human touch” – and that they will have the benefit of closure as soon as possible.
We render a seamless service from reporting of the estate to the final distribution and transfer of the property.
Our team prides itself on offering just the kind of professional skills, expertise – and empathy – that clients need during this difficult time.
