Can An Estate Executor Be Removed?

Posted by Ted Hoppe | Apr 27, 2022 | 0 Comments

Every now and then I am consulted about a situation involving dissatisfaction with how an Estate is being administered. Sometimes it's the Executor who is being challenged and sometimes it's a beneficiary who does not agree with something that the Executor is doing. 

Let me start out by saying that almost always the issue is a problem with communication. My encouragement to Executors is to be transparent as much as possible. My encouragement to beneficiaries is to be patient and the talk with the Executor - don't assume they are acting inappropriately. Being an Executor can be a difficult and thankless job. 

The other common reason stated by heirs/beneficiaries is a dissatisfaction with what the Will says about the distribution of the property in the Estate. For a discussion about challenging a Will, you can see my article on Challenging a Will

Ted Hoppe

Hi, my name is Ted Hoppe and I have been an attorney in Pennsylvania for more than 30 years. One of the things I enjoy best about being an attorney is meeting and getting to know the clients who come to my office. I have been privileged to build long-term relationships with many of these clients and am honored that they come back to me for advice when legal issues arise in their lives. Many of them have also referred their families and friends to me for legal services which, frankly, is the best thanks an attorney can get.
