An executor who is chosen in a will is given the responsibility of transferring the assets of the deceased person. Executors have to take care of court paperwork to initiate the probate process.

Executors also have to take responsibility for managing assets and must always act in the best interests of the deceased and beneficiaries. Find out more here about responsibilities of the executor.
