Good News on Deceased Estates
The Estate of Number 17139/2022 Click HERE to view detail

Estate Late WJ Schmid // ABSA Bank Click HERE to view detail
This estate shows the disgraceful and disgusting conduct of ABSA bank. ABSA was nominated as Trustees but did absolutely nothing, yet demanded payment of all their fees which is contrary to the Administration of Estates Act. Our firm reported the estate, did all the necessary paper work, yet ABSA demanded R 245 282.40 before doing anything. Then they even reverted to a lower level of disgust to shelve all paperwork until payment is received contrary to the Act, yet refuses to renunciate. ABSA provides a fake pro forma cash reconciliation statement with an Estate Number that is fake and do not exist. Look at the account and see the charges they are not authorized to charge. Disgusting !!! Further the surviving spouse is destitute and cut off from all financial help and assistance.
This disgusting actions by the bank is the reason why we practitioners need to stand up against the banks. See the correspondence below. Contact us for any further enquiries, this is public and in the interest of us the public.
Well done Mrs. Schmid and Javis, and thank you for having the faith in our firm. This is an example for a future client that we are capable of fighting the disgusting banks.
Estate Late WJ Schmid // ABSA Bank appointed by will as Executors
ABSA demands payment of the estate fees before they will apply to the Master for a letter of Executorship, failing that they just pend the matter and do nothing further and more importantly not renounce the estate. Only after the surviving spouse placed her complaint on Hello Peter did ABSA indicate they will investigate.
We shall report to you again on this sorry state of affairs.

CASE NO.: 2022/13239
IN THE HIGH COURT OF SOUTH AFRICA
(GAUTENG DIVISION, JOHANNESBURG)
In the ex-parte application of:
DE JAGER: ANDRIES THEODORUS
DE JAGER: CHANTEL
(MARRIED IN COMMUNITY OF PROPERTY)
(For the surrender of their estate)
Another victory to our clients, this judgement confirms the faith we have in our Courts and Judges. In this application we brought a surrender application with only a benefit of 0.015c/r, that is only one cent in the Rand benefit.
Our Judge had the discretion to grant the order and, with sufficient reasons, the application was granted. Take note that there is no “precedent” that 20c in the rand, or more, is required. The banks need to take note of the Judge’s discretion.
Well done to our client’s, legal team, the office ladies and Adv. Jaco Carstens.

PHILLIP CLOETE GREYLING // PHEIN PROJECTS (PTY) LTD AND 1 OTHER
What a success, the provisional liquidation order granted by the Honourable Judge Twala.
The liquidation application was issued in February 2021 and opposed by Mr. Hein Herbst via his attorney, Mr. Johan van Heerden of Pretoria. The filed and filed long opposing affidavits which contained absolute non legal drivel, so much so that it was difficult to understand. The result of filing the drivel was that attorneys Johan van Heerden withdrew weeks before the hearing leaving his client, Mr. Hein Herbst in the lurch, so shocking.
Mr. Herbst was left helpless in court by his legal team. But let it not be us who tell you, see for yourself. Contact us and we shall invite you on the matter on caselines so you may read for yourself, it is a public document.

WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR 2022
Now that we left 2021 behind we need to reflect on what may transpire in 2022. We were protected during the covid years 2020 and 2021, but cannot continue as the economy needs to pick up and the Government cannot sponsor us any longer. Numerous companies and businesses have just survived by not paying debt such as councils, labour and SARS. Many of the businesses have closed its doors without taking into consideration debts to SARS and the banks.
This cannot continue and the banks, councils and SARS are taking action. It is now the time to remove from your portfolio those struggling entities and liquidate them. You are when you liquidate, protected from SARS but not if you do not liquidate.
Rather start a new venture by using the skill you have acquired over the years.
Let us assist you in disposing of your non running entities.
