If you have been tasked with the responsibilities of an executor or executrix of a loved one’s Will, the Wills & Estates lawyers at Bronson Jones & Company LLP can work with you to ensure that the estate is properly distributed to the intended beneficiaries. 


The executor or personal representative of a deceased’s Will has many important responsibilities.

Some examples of  these responsibilities include:

  • Planning a funeral;

  • Obtaining a Death Certificate;

  • Conducting a Wills Notice Search at BC Vital Statistics;

  • Cancelling pension benefits;

  • Applying for death benefits;

  • Determining the specific type of grant required from the Court;

  • Identifying the proper applicant / personal representative who will apply for a grant;

  • Providing notice to all beneficiaries and next of kin;

  • Identifying all assets of the deceased;

  • Identifying all debts and liabilities of the deceased;

  • Providing notice to prospective creditors;

  • Applying to the Court for probate;

  • Selling properties;

  • Handling investments; and

  • Preparing income tax returns

The responsibilities of an executor can be complex and feel overwhelming, particularly while also struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one.  The executor may encounter additional anxiety knowing that he/she can be personally liable if mistakes are made to the detriment of a potential beneficiary or creditor.


The Wills & Estate lawyers at Bronson Jones & Company LLP can assist the executor or personal representative with the technical and time-consuming administrative duties required of him or her, and provide peace of mind by ensuring that the administration of the estate is handled correctly and in accordance with the deceased’s wishes.
