Who should I choose as my executor?

Who you choose as executor is important. You can choose a person or an organization like State Trustees to carry out your wishes. The role of an executor is a big job, so ensure they are aware and willing to do so before nominating them.

Your executor will need to:

  • identify all your assets and debts
  • apply for probate
  • protect your assets
  • arrange conveyancing – this transfers ownership of your property to your beneficiaries
  • prepare tax returns for you and your estate
  • defend your estate from any legal claims
  • try to resolve any disputes between beneficiaries
  • distribute your assets
