When a person makes a will, they are able to specify a named person(s) or an institution to carry out the instructions in the will and deal with their estate following death. The executor becomes the representative of the deceased person, carrying out their wishes and dealing with their assets, liabilities and bequests in accordance with the law, current tax rules and the terms of the will. The role is the same if the executor is an organisation or named person(s).
