Flexible Consultation Options and Transparent Fees – Your Convenient Path to Efficient Deceased Estate Administration.
Our services include an online consultation, which can be completed at your convenience, and friendly telephonic support for clients who prefer to go through the consultation with a legal consultant. We also offer face-to-face meetings with our legal consultants at no additional cost.
Siyatec Executors charges a flat rate estate fee, providing a significant cost saving compared to the standard fees charged by traditional law firms. Our process involves an online consultation, uploading required documents, payment of the initiation fee, and reporting document preparation. Once the reporting documents are signed and submitted, we receive Letters of Executorship from the Master within 2 to 3 months.
Our legal consultants then assist with the estate distribution process, including property transfers, debt payments, and payouts to heirs. The entire process takes approximately 12 months to finalise.
“I appreciate your guidance and assistance throughout this process. I understand that is your job but your service has gone beyond any obligation that you have as a service provider. It’s a good day because I was able to do this despite all the challenges but it is also sad because it means my Mum’s estate has completely reached its finality. Thank you so much for everything.”
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 Executors we charge a flat rate fee of R 21 000.00 as the estate fee.
Our Online Consultation can be completed at your own convenience. Friendly telephonic support is ready for clients who would like to go through the Online Consultation with a Legal Consultant. At no additional cost, a face to face meeting can be arranged with one of our Legal Consultants to conduct the consultation.

Payment of the initiation fee
Once the Online Consultation has been completed and supporting documents uploaded, a Legal Consultant will contact you within 24 hours.
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.
We will also give you directions for payment of the Initiation Fee.
Finally, arrangements will be made at your convenience for signature of the Reporting Documents.
Within 2 to 3 months after reporting the estate we receive Letters of Executorship from the Master.
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.
