California’s Premier Probate-specific Real Estate Brokerage

The role of an Executor


The executor of a will is in charge of making sure the wishes of the deceased are carried out, as well as handling the final affairs of the estate.

The first responsibility of an estate executor is to obtain copies of the death certificate. The funeral home will provide the death certificate; ask for multiple copies.

An executor’s biggest responsibility to beneficiaries is to notify them that they are, in fact, beneficiaries. This includes what assets are in the estate, how much debt the estate has and how the executor plans to pay that debt.
