What are Executors?


Executors are simply the people appointed in your Will to carry out your instructions.  Executors bring together all your assets, pay your debts and any gifts of money, transfer any gifts or personal belongings and deal with the remainder – your Residuary Estate – in accordance with your Will.  Often non-professional Executors will ask a professional organisation such as Cornerstone Wills or a solicitor to do some or all of the work for them.
