Overseas Executors of a UK Will

Published / Last Updated on 29/08/2019

It is sensible to not appoint executors overseas but to appoint an executor in the UK for a UK Will. 

Overseas executors may not speak English.

Overseas executors my have to travel regularly or for long periods to the UK to deal with your affairs or they may have to appoint a UK professional adviser, solicitor or accountant to deal with the estate, income taxes, inheritance taxes, probate and pensions death benefits and death in service company life insurance with without discretionary trusts.

It is safer to appoint a UK based executor.
