Should a person pass away during the transfer process, the entire transfer will need to come to a halt, until an executor of the estate has been appointed.
A Power of Attorney issued to a 3rd party for the deceased person becomes invalid upon death. Only the executor will be able to continue the transfer process. Before this even happens, the conveyancer must receive written consent from the High Court, giving the executor permission to continue the transfer process in the name of the deceased.
All outstanding costs which would have been for the account of the now-deceased person will become the responsibility of the estate.
