Whom should I appoint as Executors?
Any adult, solicitor or bank may be appointed as an Executor. One
could be the person who is going to receive the biggest share of
your estate, such as your spouse. Relatives and close family friends
can also be Executors.
It's easy to appoint another Executor later if you want to do
so by means of a Codicil. If you appoint a professional Trustee,
they will charge for their service. For more on this, see
our section on Trust Corporations, if chosen,
are generally much more cost-effective than a bank or solicitor.
