Courts are more willing to deal with executor bad behaviour than they have been in the past, but it’s no easy feat and can impose a heavy toll on family relationships and the management of the estate. This session will explore the options and processes involved in executor removal, including:

  • Why executor appointment needs to be carefully considered upfront
  • The risks of appointing family members and other interested parties
  • Role and responsibilities of executors and where it can all go wrong
  • What constitutes unacceptable behaviour?
  • At what stage can an application be made to remove an executor?
  • What is the process for removal?
  • What will the courts consider in a removal application?
  • Who pays the costs of an application for removal?
  • Are there alternative options for managing a poorly performing executor?
  • The courts and independent third - party appointments - a new solution?
  • Recent cases including Re Hartley (deceased) [2020] QSC 251; Connock v Connock (in his capacity as the executor of Connock) [2021] VSC 64; Re Vasiliades; Pappas v Vasiliades [2021] VSC 720

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
