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

Further to the above, you will have to spend time discussing more than just "who do you want to give that Bentley to once you're gone?" What happens if your friend falls ill / ends up in prison for the rest of his days / disappears in a canoe? You really need a deep friendship - love? - to get involved; one where you can make 'executive' decisions knowing you have that authority.

The material stuff is a headache in itself, but it's the vacuum created when someone's no longer compis mentis which causes the protracted ordeal of stepping up to take charge. Don't even think of the paperwork coming your way or you'll surely say no!
