Thankfully you do not have to appoint a random neighbour to be an Executor, you can select anyone you wish. I always suggest having three to ensure a majority decision can be taken should the need arise. I am also pleased to report that Alexandra Truesdale has written a piece on this very subject for our latest Spotlight magazine, which should be with you very shortly, if not already.
Constructing a Will can be complicated due to complex families. It can also be straight-forward for, you guessed it, straight-forward ones. Understanding what is important and what is essential is the skill of a solicitor and not something that you should ever leave to chance or a knock off do-it-yourself Will.
