Challenging Executor Of Will

How to challenge the executor of a Will

The executor is the person named in the Will as being responsible for dealing with the deceased’s estate.

Services also offered in

Their responsibilities include:

  • Collecting the deceased’s assets
  • Paying any outstanding debts
  • Preparing accounts detailing the assets and liabilities in the estate
  • Distributing the estate according to the Will

The executor has a duty to carry out these tasks. If you believe the executor is distributing assets incorrectly or failing in their other duties, you may be able to make a claim against them.

You can also apply to the court to have an executor removed from their role. Our specialist solicitors are often asked to take over with the administration of an estate in these cases.
