Learning executor duties is an important first step for those who are named as an executor of an estate under a will.
In some states, (like Florida) the term "executor" is synonymous with the the term "personal representative". Regardless of the terminology both the executor and personal representative have legal and fiduciary obligations to the testator (decedent) of the estate.
Executor duties also require a general understanding of probate laws and compliance with legal procedures, complex accounting methodologies and appropriate disclosures to beneficiaries and courts.
Many states require executors to be represented by an estate administration lawyer or probate attorney.
