FOCUSCuratorship and Trustee administration
I have 14 years experience as conveyancer and notary public.
During 2013 I was appointed as Curator of my very first patient and has since been appointed as Curator Bonis and Trustees in more than 160 Curatorship Estates and 50 disability trusts.
One of our most recent appointments is one of the largest ever medical negligence claims in the history of the South African Law.
We are proud to say that we have some of the best staff who are experts in their field with more than 50 years collective experience in Curatorship and Trustee administration and dealing with amongst others the Road Accident Fund.
Each patient is allocated a dedicated case manager who attends to the patient’s day to day financial needs. We are proud to announce that part of our team we have two full time accountants, a non-practising financial planner and auditor who sees to the day to day finances of each patient and their respective needs.
We have also developed a structured and patient minded system to ensure that the patient’s needs and attention to the patients is the foremost priority.
We are also administering in excess of 30 estates at various stages of their involvement.
In addition to all of the above, we also accept appointments in terms of the Mental Health Care Act, 17 of 2002 and if the need arise can assist as investigator upon approval and appointment by the Master ofthe High Court.
