Personal Representative’s Duties
By Administrator on 2014/12/11
The property of a deceased is placed in the hands of a trustee, known as a personal representative. A personal representative is called an executor, when there is a Will, or an administrator when there is no Will. The obligations of an executor arise from the moment of death. A person is not obliged to accept a position as an executor even if named in a Will. An executor can renounce this role but must do so before making any decisions regarding the deceased’s estate.
