What Can I Do If I Do Not Want to Be the Executor?
Published on 30th August, 2016 by Desmond Ong
The testator (i.e. deceased person who left a Will) cannot compel you to be the Executor.
Even if you are named as the Executor in the Will, you can choose to renounce your right to be the Executor.
In certain Wills, the testator will name more than one Executor or name a replacement Executor. In such cases, the original Executor can renounce his right to be the Executor and let the second Executor or the replacement Executor administer the estate.
