The Executor of your Will makes sure that your wishes are carried out as stated in your Will. They are also responsible for handling all the legal and financial requirements of settling your estate.
You should appoint someone that you trust and that will likely be present should something happen to you. They should be reliable and someone that will ensure your wishes are followed through.
We strongly recommend that you appoint an alternate Executor in the event your Executor noted above is unable or unwilling to administer your estate.
Example: you could appoint your spouse as the Executor and your sibling as an Alternate Executor.
Choosing the right Executor can save your estate money, shorten the settlement process considerably and ensure that all your beneficiaries are looked after relative to the provisions in the Will.
