What’s the role of an Executor?
An executor is responsible for handling the administration of an estate after a loved one has passed away. They must do this following the deceased wishes, as stated in the Will, and distribute the assets accordingly. Often this is a daunting task and many executors don’t know where to begin or how to do it in the correct way.
What if there is no Will?
Sometimes a loved one may pass away appointing a family member as their Executor, or they may sadly pass away without leaving a Will. In either instance, your estate has to be dealt with in accordance with either your Will or in accordance with the law, to ensure that your wishes and/or those of your loved ones are adhered to, also in accordance with the rules and laws of probate. It is a worthwhile practice for your family to appoint a professional and an experienced firm to act on their behalf, to relieve the burden of administrating your estate, which is a time consuming and sometimes complex exercise.
