Introduction to Being an Executor
Being an Executor is for people who have been appointed as executor in a will. It covers the steps involved in British Columbia in dealing with an estate after a person dies, including the procedure to probate the will. The information reflects the Wills, Estates and Succession Act, which became law in 2014.
At People's Law School, we believe accurate, plain English information can help people take action to work out their legal problems. This publication explains in a general way the law that applies in British Columbia. It is not intended as legal advice. For help with a specific legal problem, contact a legal professional. Some sources of legal help are highlighted in the "Where to Get Help" section.
We have tried to use clear language throughout. See the "Glossary" section for definitions of key legal terms, which are also bolded in the text.
