Minister Ronald Lamola to unveil game-changing online system revolutionising Deceased Estate Registrations

05 October 2023

On October 10, 2023, Minister Ronald Lamola will launch the Deceased Estates Online Registration System at the Midrand Conference Centre, marking a significant milestone in the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development modernisation program. The new online system is an innovative technology that signifies a paradigm shift in access to Masters Services, as it enables clients to transact Masters' services remotely from anywhere and at any time, without the need to visit the Masters' Offices, thus reducing queues and travel costs for members of the public.

The Deceased Estates Online Registration System is part of the Department's modernisation program to provide efficient and convenient services to clients. The system allows clients to access the Masters' Services on their mobile device or computer without visiting the Masters' Offices physically. Furthermore, self-service and staff-assisted kiosks will be established at all Masters Offices to help clients report estates online easily.

The Office of the Chief Master has collaborated with stakeholders to conduct comprehensive testing of the system's functionality and ease of use to ensure the system is user-friendly and efficient. The Deceased Estates Online Registration System is expected to revolutionise the Masters' Services by providing a convenient and efficient way for clients to transact with the Masters' Offices remotely.

The media is invited to attend the launch event on October 10th, 2023, at the Midrand Conference Centre, Ext 12, 661 Pendulim Road, Midrand, starting at 08h30.
