I own a property that has two houses on the erf and was hoping you could give me advice on bequeathing the property to my two children.
I live in the main house on the property and my son and his family reside in the other. My son has been unemployed for several years now, during which time I have been financially supporting him.
I’m currently looking into moving into a retirement home and having my second child and family move into my current home.
My main concern at this stage is how to go about leaving the property to my two children in the event of my death. Ideally, I was wanting to leave one house to each child or subdivide the property into two independent properties to ensure that the estate has been divided equally among them but after investigation have found out that this is legally not possible, or is it?
