Family Asks Court to Remove Executor


It is not uncommon for the beneficiaries under the will to want to have a different executor from the one appointed in the will. A case now starting will determine if they have the right to do so

It concerns a man from South London who is taking legal action to have the executor appointed under his late stepfather’s will removed. The executor, a firm of will-writers, has refused to step down and the Court will be asked to rule on whether the beneficiaries of an estate can act to remove an unpopular executor.
An executor can decline to act, but cannot normally be removed.
