Question 2 Can you handle the executor job?
Arguing with people over estate problems is stressful. But if you are the only beneficiary, you may not have anyone to argue with.
Is an alternate executor named in the will? You have options. Notify the alternate executor that you declined the job or renounced. There are many legitimate reasons for you to do this. You do not have to explain why you declined.
To renounce, you notify the alternate-named executor to take charge. Renouncing is easy. You don’t need permission. Resigning, however, is a time-consuming and a costly legal process. Don’t start the job unless you are prepared to finish it.
