What is an Executor?

If you have been named an executor in a will, the deceased wanted you to administer his or her estate, perhaps with another person.

There can be any number of executors named in a will, although one or two is usually considered sufficient.

Your fellow executor could be another member of the family, a friend or myself (Bernie Hayward).

In this case I will charge for services performed in connection with the administration of the deceased's estate. If those services are just the same as if I am instructed to act for the executor, the fees will be exactly the same. If I have to do more than this (ie. arranging the funeral or cleaning out of the house) then additional fees may be applied for. Any such application would be for commission and would have to be approved by the Supreme Court.

If you are the sole executor, you may need my assistance to deal with the legalities of administration.
