Customer Question

There are 10 sibling beneficiaries, one of which is the Executor. If the home and land is put up for tender, do the benificiaries legally have a full say in accepting or rejecting an offer or does the Executor have overriding power?

The executor is the only one that has any right to make a decision about the assets of the estate. The beneficiaries do not have such a right.

In most cases the executor will consider what the beneficiaries want but really the executor must carry out the terms of the will and has authority to do so on his/her own.
