Assisting you through the legal process during this difficult time

The first step is to register the estate with the Master of the High Court and to obtain as much as possible information on the deceased’s assets and liabilities. The estate can either be directed by manner of the deceased’s Last Will and Testament, and in the absence of same, the Interstate Succession Act.

If the value of the estate exceeds R250 000, letters of Executorship (LOE) must be issued by the Master and the full process prescribed by the Act must be followed.

If the value of the estate is less than R250 000, the Master may instead of a LOE, issue letters of authority (LOA) in terms of section 18(3) of Administration of Estates Act meaning the full process prescribed by the Administration of Estates Act (the Act)will not have to be followed.

The appointed Executor is the accountable person in the administration process, and often the decease entrusted a spouse, child, friend or family member to oversee this mammoth task. Should the administration process not be done correctly and not comply with the provisions of the Will and the Act, the executor could be held personally liable.

“I met Chanelle Rheeder as a co-executor for my late cousin’s estate and as this was my first time acting as an executor, I was very new to all the procedures. Chanelle took the legal reins while I dealt with unearthing all my cousin’s excessively complicated assets. Negotiating our way through complex family issues, probates in four different countries, and properties and bank accounts all over the world, was a minefield, however Chanelle kept her composure, and sense of humour, throughout the process. Her professionalism shone through when my patience was wearing thin, and she conducted herself in a calm, unflustered manner throughout, ensuring a fair and reasonable outcome to any interference from the heirs.”

“I have great appreciation for the iProtect Group and the staff members whom I dealt with during the completion of the Estate of my Late husband. All efforts were made to ensure that the matter was handled with the greatest of care, speed and efficiency possible. With poor experiences of previous estates completed with other firms, I can wholeheartedly recommend the services of the iProtect Group”

“My mother died recently, and this has been the saddest time in my life, sadder than anyone can imagine.
I would like to put on record how fortunate we are to have Chanelle Rheeder and her competent iProtect team take care of mom’s estate.
My brother and I were appointed as executors of our mother’s will and our first meeting after her death was on Thursday 21st December.
What impressed us most at that meeting was the fact that Chanelle gave us TIME! She treated us in an unhurried manner, she was calm, caring, patient and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, and she listened to all our concerns in a relaxed and sharing fashion. She just seemed to understand our situation in an instant and made valuable suggestions as to the way forward.

Chanelle certainly has the gift of empathy.
We left the meeting feeling reassured and at ease knowing we had her to handle the estate. My brother, who had only met Chanelle that day for the first time, commented as we walked to the car, “WOW, what a nice lady, so professional yet so down to earth. I feel so much better after chatting to her. She’s a wonderful person!”
To date, every dealing with her company and those associated with her, have been first class!
Isn’t this what life is about? Taking care of each other??”
