  • Dealing with a Problem Executor (Webinar)
    by People’s Law School
    • What: If you have an interest in an estate in British Columbia but are not the one handling things, you may have questions. How much disclosure are you entitled to? How long can the process drag on for? What if the executor isn’t competent or, worse yet, dishonest? Being an executor is a demanding role. But if you’re depending on an executor to deal with an estate, you may find yourself frustrated and not knowing where to go for help. If you can relate, join PLS for a free webinar with lawyers Amy Mortimore and Zachary Rogers, who will answer common questions about dealing with a problem executor, including questions you bring to the webinar.
