Estates, Wills & Trusts

Estate planning is very important for the proper administration of assets in the event of death. It is also essential should you have a specific wish with regard to an inheritance or bequest.

VTC supports their clients by providing them with a full spectrum of services which includes planning and advice with regard to an estate in which there is immovable property and also in the case of a property being hypothecated with a mortgage bond, establishing a trust, drafting a will and transferring immovable property from a deceased estate to the beneficiaries.

Wills can be very simple or quite complex depending on the client’s estate and wishes. VTC approaches each client’s case knowing that every situation is unique. Our attorneys can advise you on the range of options available and recommend those that suit your unique situation.

Everybody should have a Last Will. If you do not own assets right now, the time may come when you will accumulate assets. Should you pass away without a will, your assets will be dealt with according to the law of intestate succession, irrespective of your wishes with regard to your assets.

We will help you to explore all of your options for administering your estate and will guide you through the process of creating the best estate plan possible.
