Executor of Will Duties
What is a role of an Executor?
An executor of a will is appointed to “administer” the will maker’s estate. This person is responsible for faithfully carrying out the will maker’s wishes as stated in the will, preserving estate assets and generally acting for the benefit of beneficiaries.
Executor of will duties in QLD are outlined in the Succession Act 1981. Before agreeing to execute a will, it’s important to understand what you’re getting yourself into. If you have been named as executor of a will, QLD Estate Lawyers can make this process less confusing.
