Estate Executors and Their

Responsibilities

The executor of a will is responsible for the administration of the deceased person's estate.  Depending on the size of the state, there can be many tasks that need to be performed before an estate is settled.  Even small estates will have various legal and financial requirements to fulfill.  An acting executor assists the executor with his or her estate duties, either fully or in part.  This can include probate, asset collection and distribution, accounting and other estate affairs.  The executor still remains responsible for the overall management of the state, and is the final decision-maker regarding any estate issues. Having a Winnipeg estate planning lawyer as an acting executor of an estate can be critical because of the many estate duties that will need to be carried out.  A skilled lawyer will also be well-versed in estate, trust and probate laws, and can ensure that any legal obligations are fully met.
