I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.
Is ABSA Bank standing down as the executor because the value of the estate is quite small?
Do you know the value of the estate?
Where about are you based? Cape Town?
