When you make your Will you must name an Executor or Executors. These individuals are legally responsible for handling your Estate when you die and for carrying out the instructions that you have created in your Will.
The Executors are responsible for collecting and managing all of your Estate, liaising with HMRC and paying any tax that may fall due, completing all appropriate paperwork required at the Probate Registry and finally paying the Beneficiaries their Inheritance. This can all be a bit complicated; your Executors need to be trustworthy, responsible, and capable.
Being an Executor is not straightforward. It can take up a lot of time and might be the last thing you feel like doing when you are grieving, so you will need to be careful before you agree to take on this significant responsibility.
Quite often the Executors may need some help, which we can provide.
