It is important for executors to work together in order to ensure that the estate is managed properly and that the wishes of the deceased are carried out. When drafting your Will, a dispute resolution clause can be added to avoid any potential issues. However, if there is a dispute amongst the executors, it can become difficult to manage the estate. In this case, the executors can apply to the court for assistance. The court can then make an order to resolve the dispute, such as appointing an independent administrator, who will have the authority to manage the estate. The court can also order the executors to attend mediation or arbitration in order to resolve their dispute.
