Are You Cut Out To Be An Executor?

Executors will encounter minimal difficulty if they follow the provisions of a properly drafted will. However, if the testator’s affairs are complicated, the executor may not have the knowledge or skills necessary to do the job. A person has the right to decline the position of executor at the outset and may withdraw at any time.  An executor of a will is responsible for making sure that debts owed to creditors of the deceased are paid off. Any remaining money or property is distributed according to the decedent’s wishes. Although the law does not require an executor to be a lawyer or financial expert, it does require that every executor fulfill their duties with the utmost honest and diligence.
