After the person has passed, his Deceased Estate should be divided and distributed by an executor. However, before the process starts, the executor should identify all the properties including bank accounts, real estate, insurance policies, other investments and personal assets. They should ensure that all debts, charges and taxes are paid before proceeding with any delivery. Keeping all those duties in mind, those who should be executed, the questions which are often asked – should be chosen as an executor to fulfil all the instructions set out in someone’s wishes.

Selection of the correct executor will ensure the immediate and correct distribution of Deceased Estate with the minimum disturbance to the family and other beneficiaries.

A beneficiary, family member or friend is a general choice for the executor because they know very well about your property and matters. In addition, in this way, you will avoid paying the fee you normally pay to the legal professional.
