Frequently Asked Questions: As Executor or Administrator what are my duties?

Question

As Executor or Administrator what are my duties? 

Answer

In short, your duties are to establish the contents of the estate, pay off all valid debts, and to distribute the remainder of the estate to the beneficiaries when a decree of the Court has been issued. The Judge will inform you of your exact responsibilities when you are appointed executor or administrator. If you have more detailed questions about your duties, it is best to contact either a lawyer who deals with probate or the Probate Court.
