 Recorded Webinar: Disapproval and Removal: Showing Executors the Door

Date: Wednesday 1st February 2023

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
