Executor of Estate

DESCRIPTION:

An “Executor of Estate” is an individual appointed to administrate the estate of a deceased person. The executor's main duty is to carry out the instructions and wishes of the deceased. The executor is appointed either by the testator of the will (the individual who makes the will) or by a court, in cases where there was no prior appointment.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • A probated will or certified letters of testamentary verifying executor/executrix or letters of administration verifying appointment of personal representative. If the will is not probated, an affidavit of inheritance and a copy of the death certificate must be provided
  • If the deceased left a will designating an executor/executrix or if an administrator is appointed by the court, the Certificate of Title signed by the executor/executrix
    • If Co-Executors, both parties are required to sign to either apply for duplicate title or transfer the ownership
  • Certificate of Registration, if applicable.
  • Odometer Disclosure Statement, if applicable.
