Why Do You Need An Executor/Administrator?
An executor is the individual or corporation charged with carrying out the wishes of the deceased, as outlined in a will. A trustee is the individual or corporation responsible for administering a trust. An executor or trustee can be a family member, a bank, an attorney or a trusted friend.
It can be a difficult job, especially if the estate or trust is complex or extensive.

How Does The Process Work?
