The executor of a will, also known as the personal representative, has certain responsibilities during the probate process. The individual drafting a will is the person who names the executor. The executor’s most important duty is to ensure that a decedent’s will is administered properly and that assets are distributed in accordance with the will’s terms. The executor of the will also owes the decedent’s estate a fiduciary duty. Specifically, the will executor has a duty to act in the estate’s best interests at all times – especially when it comes to distributing the estate’s assets in accordance with the decedent’s wishes.
