We often find that one spouse leaves everything to the other spouse and appoints the other spouse as the Executor. The problem arises when the partner dies and there is then no Executor and it is necessary to have someone then consent to be appointed or have the court appoint someone. Accordingly, you need to check your Will to ascertain whether you have a default Executor so that this kind of unforeseen eventuality does not happen. We are happy to talk to you about these matters and it might also be timely for you to check any of your parents or grandparents Wills to make sure that this is not a problem and we are happy to look at these documents and advise you whether any changes are to be made.
