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

We have experience of being an executor & trustee of a will and all I can say is - don't do it.
You are legally responsible for many things - my husband got a bill for 6000 pounds from a solicitor as the estate had assets but no cash to pay their fees - as the only thing really worth anything was a property that someone could live in till they departed. I have heard horror stories even worse!!
I am an executor for 3 people but have now requested that they find someone else - it really is a thankless task
