Why Appoint A Solicitor As My Executor?

Many people opt to have an independent professional as the executor of their estate. There are a number of advantages to this, including:

  • professional knowledge and expertise in estate administration
  • impartial and efficient – they’ll always act in the best interests of the estate
  • takes stress away from your loved ones at a difficult time
  • they take on liability for your estate being administered correctly.

An executor has many duties and is personally responsible for dealing with the estate correctly. It can be a complex, time-consuming and stressful role.

Having an independent executor means your loved ones have the space to grieve for their loss without worrying about the practicalities of dealing with your estate. It can also save potential conflict, especially if there is already disagreement within the family.
