If you are appointed the executor of an Estate it is crucial that you obtain legal advice in order to carry out your responsibilities efficiently and within the law.
Upon the death of a person an executor is the chosen to carry out the terms of a Will and to be responsible for the administration of the Estate of the deceased person and the final distribution of their assets.
Duties of an Executor include:
The executor must act at all times with care and in the best interests of the beneficiaries. The executor must endeavour to administer the Estate in accordance with any direction or power in the Will as quickly as possible including distribution, or even a partial distribution, to the beneficiaries where for some reason a complete distribution is not immediately possible.
Being an executor is an important job and carries great responsibility.
The team at Ferguson Cannon Lawyers can assist executors in all aspects of Estate administration to ensure the executor carries out their responsibilities lawfully and efficiently.
