About this document
Once you have drafted your will, you should write to the people you would like to nominate as executors of your estate to ask them whether they would be willing to take up the role.
Alternatively, since their appointment only becomes official after your death and if they agree at that time, you may simply want to tell them that you have nominated them.
This is a template letter that you can use as a basis for your own request or notice.
The law on wills
The law on wills can seem complicated. We have prepared a number of short articles to explain the more difficult legal concepts. You may like to read some of our articles about preparing your own will.

The document had everything I needed, was very concise and easy to understand. In the past I have used a law book (can't remember which one - a Guide to the Law or something similar) but that was many years ago and many things have changed.I needed something quickly, and something clearly understood by all parties. This was it.

Well laid out document formalizing the process of appointing executors when no family succession is available or clearly drawn due to family internal problems.
