Does an Executor of a Will have to sign anything?

Category: Wills

The role of executor does not require any signing at the time the Will is made.

The Executor’s duties begin after the death of the Testator when they are responsible for administering the estate in accordance with the terms of the Will. At this point, they may have a wide variety of documents to sign, such as:

  • Probate application
  • HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) forms
  • Estate accounts
  • Receipts and releases
  • Letters or notifications to financial institutions and creditors
  • Contracts and deeds if selling property
