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

Wouldn't it just be simpler for my friend to hire a solicitor to deal with all of this? What is the point of getting a rather dim layman who lives several hundred miles away involved?
Quite honestly a lot of people don't know what's involved in asking somebody to be an executor. Or don't think. They view asking a friend to be an executor of their Will is an honour - kind of like asking them to be their best man! Others think they might protect beneficaries of their estate from undue expenses by appointing a layman vs a professional executor.

It's worth pointing out that if you find yourself appointed as an executor, you can refuse the appointment.
