When advising people who are making their will, a common question we are asked is who should I choose to be my executors?
You need to appoint at least one person to deal with your estate after you have died, and we understand choosing people to undertake this role can be tricky. Being an executor carries some important legal and financial responsibilities, so it is important that you pick the right person to carry out the wishes that you have specified in your will.
