Re: Estate: Late Gill Elliott.
I have received Marais Lamprecht: Francois Lamprecht 12 May 2020 letter on behalf of One Financial Solution: Isobel Rohwer [12 May: MLA-FM: Estate Late: Gill Elliott]; in response to LJ v GM Elliot [lj-v-gme] correspondence.
I don’t know if your client informed you but I am a member of the Ecology of Peace culture [EoP Axis Oath: LJ]. Ecology of Peace culture advocate on behalf of the orderly and humane abolition of Babylon War is Peace international law, and the implementation of Ecology of Peace international law [EoP v WiP Law: eop-v-wip-law: PDF].
I have been drafting a detailed [Edwin Rutsch: Empathy aka Active Listening Circle: 9 min] EoP Law listening response, paragraph per paragraph response to your clients correspondence. It is almost finished, but requires some editing. I shall provide it to you by the latest end of tomorrow; within the context of:
[A] Bhe vs The Magistrate Khayelitsha [DoJ&CD; SAFLII].
Dawn informed me of the following, paraphrased as follows: ‘Jill changed her will on 09 May 2019, and included me as a beneficiary. Isobel said that she advised Gill to change her will to include Dawn, and she later told Dawn: Don’t worry, I will take care of you.’
To the extent that (a) Gill had no children or grandchildren (b) her Crawley relatives lived in the Orange Free State; and were unable to provide Gill with family old age care generally provided by a husband and/or children; and/or highly paid professional caring home services; (c) Lara and Dawn provided Dawn with such ‘family caring services enabling Gill to live in her own home on her own terms until her dying breath. Lara and Dawn provided such ‘family caring services’ for a very very basic minimum rental barter exchange agreement; because they cared about Gill. Had Gill hired them to provide such caring services as professionals it would have (a) cost Gill far more than she paid in the limited rental barter exchange agreements; and (b) would not have been sincere concern for Gill. In such context Isobels advice to Gill to make provisions that Dawn be reasonably compensated for her barter exchange adopted daughter voluntary provision of daughter / family services; was reasonable and fair, meeting the needs of family relationships where the deceased has direct heirs, and not allowing the law to discriminate against Dawn’s lack of a formal landlord-tenant mutual-assistance-marriage; on the basis of gender or birth. The same principle should apply to any other individual who was not a family member of Gill, but voluntarily and with the equivalent voluntary concern of a concerned family member provided Gill with ‘family care services’ in the last seven years of her life; for which they were not financially compensated during the provision of such services; while Gill was alive, presumably because of Gill reasonable concern to make sure that her finances were not depleted, prior to her death.
The Master of the High Court allows the Estate administrator and family of a deceased to agree on the way the estate should be distributed. The Master of the High Court may not, however, allow vulnerable groups like women and children to be exploited as a result of a family agreement.
Offhand: My request to the Estate and Family in such context is as follows:
[A1] a portion of Gills Estate equivalent to (a) 100% of what was received by Dawn in terms of residency occupier / tenant occupier: 6 months tenancy notice; and (b) 50% of what is to be received by Dawn in terms of estate inheritor disbursement; equally dimishing all inheritors Estate disbursement.
[A2] If the attempts at eviction of SQWorms tenant activities of Estate members subsequent to Gills death were negligently – obstruction of barter exchange agreement justice – irregular; if provided a written apology for such negligent eviction behaviours; as per [A1]. If not: (a) 100% of what was received by Dawn in terms of residency occupier / tenant occupier: 6 months tenancy notice; and (b) 70% of what is to be received by Dawn in terms of estate inheritor disbursement; the additional 20% – discriminatory damages – to be retrieved from the Estate disbursement of the/ those inheritor/s who were engaged in the negligent discriminatory activities.
[A3] If the attempts at eviction of SQWorms tenant activities of Estate members subsequent to Gills death were intentional malicious obstruction of barter exchange agreement justice irregular; if provided a written apology for such malicious eviction behaviours; as per [A1]. If not: (a) 100% of what was received by Dawn in terms of residency occupier / tenant occupier: 6 months tenancy notice; and (b) 100% of what is to be received by Dawn in terms of estate inheritor disbursement; the additional 50% – discriminatory eviction damages – to be retrieved from the Estate disbursement of the/those inheritor/s who were engaged in intentional malicious discriminatory behaviours.
If these issues in dispute cannot be amicably resolved between SQWorms and Gills Estate inheritors; I shall have to file an application contesting Gills will with the Master of the High Court.
