A will is made to ensure that the testator (the person who made the Will) can detail how and where their assets should be distributed in the event of their death.
The executor of the will has the duty of carrying out the instructions of the Will.
If no executor is named in the Will, this task will be performed by an administrator.
The duties required of both positions are very similar, though there are some differences with regards to the terminology used for both.
The above should be used as a source of general information only. It is not intended to give a definitive statement of the law.
