SmartCheck™ @ R122 per year

Peace of mind.

Knowing that, no matter what, your will can be easily and quickly found and acted upon.

  • A monthly check against the Department of Home Affairs' death records.
  • Proactively contact family members/beneficiaries.
  • Never lose your will.

SmartCheck is a must for every person who has a will.

We ensure you have peace of mind, knowing that, no matter what, your will can be quickly and easily found and acted on.

It can happen that a will is securely stored but the only people who know where it is are the husband or wife. If they should die simultaneously, even though there is a will, no one will be able to find it.

We perform a monthly, real-time check with the South African Department of Home Affairs to ensure that if you have died we can proactively contact all relevant parties about the existence of your will.

Remember, if your will is lost a "Government will", that is, the Intestate Succession Act, will determine who inherits your estate. Effectively, the contents of the Intestate Succession Act will become your will.

This fact can work to certain people's advantage, especially if they know they are not beneficiaries in your will but stand to inherit through the Intestate Succession Act. It is not in their best interest to “find” your will.

SmartCheck ensures your will is never lost and YOUR wishes are known and acted on.

What some of our customers think.

"The process of updating my will was so overwhelming that I had snoozed the reminder on my to-do list since my my second child was born... and he is almost three. Then I found SmartWill.
The website is so intuitive and extremely simple. I found myself wondering whether it was too simplistic! The website guides you through an easy, step-by-step process that you can complete in your own time, in the comfort of your home. It takes an overwhelming task, and breaks it down into easy-to-answer questions. The cost is nominal, the quality is extraordinary. You don’t need to make an appointment with a lawyer, yet your will is reviewed by a lawyer. The whole process was so streamlined, I really can’t fault it. I strongly recommend that you just take the first step. The rest is easy." - Tanya Hanekom
"A will is always the lowest item on most people's daily priority list, but SmartWill helps make it as easy and seamless as possible. With the ability to dip in and out of the website when you have time to complete the details. With constant but not overbearing email reminders, and good advice from real people when you need it, the overall adds up to an excellent service for the price. Thanks SmartWill I can sleep a little easier now!" - Charles Edwards
