About legacy protection plans

Their signature product has now evolved into a complete solution for deceased estates. It is ground-breaking in its approach and comprehensive in its offering.

What are the costs to consider after death?

Executor fees

This is the fee charged by the executor or assisting professional to wind up your estate.

A maximum of 3.5% + VAT of your gross estate will be charged.

Example: An estate worth R3 million will pay ±R120 750 in fees

Testamentary trusts for minors

This is the fee charged by the trustees to administer the trust you create in terms of your Will, normally to look after the money you leave to minors (children under the age of 18).

On average, 1.14% will initially be charged on Net assets and 1.6% will be charged annually.

Example: The total cost with R1.5 million in assets over 15 years is ±R367 000

Property transfer fees

This is the fee charged by the transferring attorney when property needs to be inherited.

The attorney charges according to the tariff as provided for by the S.A. Law Society, effectively a percentage of the value of the property(ies) being conveyed.

Example: A home worth R1 850 000 being transferred to a beneficiary will cost ±R16 750 in fees to the estate
