Information for Executors
What do I do now?
An executor is responsible for seeing that the terms of the will are carried out. The basic duties of an executor are to collect the assets of the deceased, pay the debts and distribute the estate to the beneficiaries under the will. How this is done depends on the terms of the Will and the nature of the estate. A person can be an executor and arrange for a lawyer to complete the legal documents and the search for assets or may do it without a lawyer. Being an executor may involve all or any of the following:
making the funeral arrangements
applying for a certified copy (not an extract) of the death certificate from the Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages
locating and identifying property belonging to the deceased person.
