Responsibility for probate and administration

When a person dies, the assets that they leave (their estate) has to be dealt with. The responsibility for this rests with either the executors (where the deceased has made a will), or the administrators (if no will was made).

However, despite having different titles, the responsibilities of executors and administrators are similar. Both carry significant legal responsibility. Importantly, those dealing with the estate are accountable to the beneficiaries, any creditors and HM Revenue & Customs.

If an administrator or executor does not do their job properly, they may be personally liable for any losses suffered by the beneficiary or any unpaid debts.
