How to remove an executor of a will?
There could be many reasons why a new executor is to be appointed. Some common reasons for appointing a new executor include the current executor:
- Not wanting to be the executor of the will
- Failing to administrate the estate properly
- Being dishonest, for example, by making an unauthorised profit from the assets.
Delaying the administration of the estate
In any case, where you’re unhappy with the executor, you should always try to resolve the issue informally without court intervention. However, if you can’t resolve the matter informally, then making an application to the court to remove the executor can be your best option.
