Customer Question

How much of a fee does the executor get?

An Executor in an Estate is entitled by law to take a fee for the work performed in this capacity. The amount can vary from Province to Province but in Ontario for instance, the maximum compensation that an Executor can receive is 5% of the total value of the Estate.

This obviously depends upon the size and complexity of the Estate and how much work is required.

If you can let me know what Province you're in and roughly how much the Estate would be worth, I can give you some idea of what to expect.
