What are executors?

When your will is being written you’ll need to decide who will carry out your wishes; these people are your ‘executors’.  Your executors will be responsible for applying to the probate office for a ‘grant of probate’.

Your executors will be required to be able to calculate the value of your assets to enable them to file an Inheritance Tax Return.  Most professional willwriters will be able to act as your executors if you wish them to.
