A guide for executors and personal representatives
After someone close to you dies, there are several administrative tasks that may need to be completed, depending on the circumstances and your relationship with the deceased. Where possible, rather than manage these responsibilities on your own, call upon a trusted family member or friend to help you out.
We have created the following checklist of the most common tasks to be undertaken, along with important resource links to the appropriate governing agencies and organisations.
