After being together for more than 10 years, my life partner recently passed away and I would like to transfer the property into my name.
I am the sole beneficiary to his estate and part of it is a property valued at R5 600 000, with a R600 000 bond on it.
In considering the transfer, I am told it will cost me around R300 000.
Is it possible for it to be that high and what other costs should I be concerned about besides settling the bond?
