Welcome

Siyatec Executors is a team of legal professionals who specialize in deceased estate administration.

Anyone who has needed to wind up a deceased estate knows that it is a very expensive and time consuming process. At Siyatec, instead of charging the standard fee for winding up a deceased estate, we charge a flat rate fee.

With the use of our online platform, we are able to wind up a deceased estate more efficiently and at a much lower cost than traditional law firms.

What do we do?

We believe in making quality deceased estate services easily available to all those who need it. We do this by making our online platform our primary client engagement forum. In so doing we have embraced technology as the key to providing our clients with unmatched quality deceased estate service.

Information about deceased estates is presented to clients in plain English so that you understand what needs to be done.

Together with our online platform, we have professionally trained Legal Consultants one call away from dealing with any concern that you may have relating to deceased estates.

All you need to know to get started with the deceased estate process is right here on the Siyatec website.

How much will it cost?

The Master of the High Court who oversees the administration of deceased estates will require a nominated Executor to be assisted by a qualified person, usually an attorney, to administer any deceased estate with a value of more than R 250 000.00. The attorney will charge the estate or the family of the deceased a fee equivalent to 3.5% of the total assets of the estate.
For example if the deceased owns a house with a value of R 2 000 000.00 the attorney will charge a fee of R 70 000.00 as an estate fee. At Siyatec we charge a flat rate fee of R 21 000.00 as the estate fee.

So what’s the process?

Online Consultation

Once the Online Consultation has been completed and supporting documents uploaded, a Legal Consultant will contact you within 24 hours.

Reporting Documents

At this point we may require further information from you to finalise the documents to be submitted to the Master for the issuing of Letters of Executorship. These documents are known as the Reporting Documents.

Initiation Fee

We will also give you directions for payment of the Initiation Fee.

Signatures

Finally, arrangements will be made at your convenience for signature of the Reporting Documents.

Letters of Executorship

Within 2 to 3 months after reporting the estate we receive Letters of Executorship from the Master.

Estate Distribution

Our Legal Consultants will then deal with the estate process in order to distribute the estate. It takes approximately 12 months to finalise an estate. This means that properties are transferred to the new owners, debts are paid and the heirs are paid out.
