What is the role of the executor?

In any discussion of probate law or probating a will  it is important to understand the role of the executor and/or executrix. The appointed administrator is charged with fitting together all the pieces of the  jigsaw puzzle that come into play when the possessions and property of the deceased need to be distributed.

The executor/executrix of the decedent’s will or the appointed administrator, is responsible for the following actions:

  • Taking a complete inventory of all assets subject to probate and getting them appraised
  • Paying all outstanding bills and taxes
  • Paying funeral and burial costs
  • Managing the appraisal process and paying all legal and professional service expenses
  • Overseeing the transfer of property as stipulated by the will or by the laws of intestate succession when no will exists
