A testator may appoint any person to be an executor under his will provided that the person is willing and capable of acting as executor. Following the demise of the testator, the executor so appointed will have to apply for a Grant of Probate to administer the estate of the testator.

We advise and assist our clients on a step-by-step basis to ensure that they fully understand the duty of becoming an executor and the legal procedure involved in applying for a Grant of Probate from the High Court.
