Re: Executor for a British will, resident in Switzerland: Possible?

Being the executor to a will doesn't necessarily have to be a lot of work or require much time. I was the executor for my mother's will and I just handed the whole lot over to the solicitor. He liquidated all the assets, solved all the 'mysteries' and then handed over all the proceeds. About half way through the process we did in fact move abroad and I was able to do most things through email or on the phone. As I recall there was only one thing that I actually had to be physically present for, which involved an oath and a 7.50 fee, payable in cash to another solicitor.

The estate pays the solicitors fees before the beneficiaries are paid.

As to whether you can legally be named executor whilst being resident abroad, I don't know.
