Property transfer costs are paid in the case of the transfer of deceased property, but they are paid out of the estate of the deceased.
The transfer of deceased property is, however, exempt from transfer duty.
Note that when the owner of an estate dies, the Master of the High Court appoints an executor to administer the estate. The transfer process cannot be instigated until this executor has been appointed.
