My Executor has gone missing!
The Law Society has recently published an article entitled “What should I do if I can’t trace the Executor of a Will?”
The advice given is that in appropriate circumstances, the Court can bypass the persons entitled to a Grant (ie the Executor) and “… appoint such persons as the Court deems necessary”.
Problems like this can be avoided by updating your Will during your lifetime if your named Executor dies or you lose contact with them.
It is important that your Will is up to date and our Wills & Probate team is here to help and guide you.
