How should I go about choosing an Executor?

You may think that this is an honour that should be given to a friend or relative. What you may not realize is how difficult the job can be.

We would suggest you consider these five (5) questions:

  1. Are you sure the Executor will be there when needed and able to devote enough time to the job?
  2. Is the person comfortable in dealing with the legal, tax, investment, real estate, and business management aspects of being an Executor?
  3. Can your Executor stay completley impartial and handle the emotional stress that could arise?
  4. Have you asked, and has the person agreed, to take on the responsibility?
  5. Does the person you've chosen understand that he or she can be held personally liable for any mistakes?
