Agent for Executor services are provided by a trust company to the Executor of an estate. The trust company acts as an agent to assist with the estate administration. Perhaps someone has named you in their Will as their Executor. It is now your responsibility to manage their estate and distribute it to their beneficiaries in accordance with the terms specified in the Will during what could be a difficult time for you. It can often take a year or more to conclude the estate administration and there are many circumstances in which a family member or friend will find it difficult to serve as Executor. You may feel that you don’t have the knowledge, time or emotional energy to take on this responsibility and that you don’t wish to assume the associated legal liability. And you may worry that there could be complicated family dynamics which will prove challenging.
