Deceased Estate Administration

The Administration of Estates Act prescribes the process and steps and compulsory time-periods that must be followed when administering a deceased estate. Appleton provides a complete and seamless estate administration service. Irrespective of the complexity of the estate, Appleton manages all stages of the estate promptly, efficiently and ethically. The efficient management of a deceased estate to finality requires a host of skills, ranging from legislative and regulatory compliance, to financial accounting, taxation, property conveyancing, trusts (local and offshore), banking and asset management.

Working efficiently and effectively with the Master of the Supreme Court, the South African Revenue Services, attorneys, estate agents, auctioneers, insurance brokers, banks, hospitals and local authorities are but a few of the most important stakeholders Appleton takes responsibility for. The effective application, sequencing and co-ordination of this applied skill-set is vital to the expeditious and cost-effective administration of an estate and the absence of any one of these skills can be extremely costly and time-consuming. It is therefore critically important to appoint a professional company such as Appleton Fiduciary Services to provide you with legal certainty, financial security and peace of mind.
