The Drafting of Wills
The amendments to the law of wills brought about by the Law of Succession Amendment Act of 1992 have created fundamental changes in South African testamentary law. This book analyzes the Wills Act as now amended. It deals with such topics as language usage generally, taking instruction from would-be testators, the structure of wills, estate duty, the limits to freedom of testation, the interpretation of wills, donation of human tissues, the so-called living will, traps to avoid in drafting, testamentary trusts, and other problems which practitioners commonly have to handle. It discusses important cases which have shaped testamentary law and gives examples of wills and testamentary trusts.
