Can Executors act who live abroad? 

If you are appointed as the Executor of a person’s Will and you live abroad, theoretically, you can still deal with their Estate. However, practically, you may find it best to appoint Probate Solicitors to deal with the majority of affairs on your behalf. 
 
When you are an Executor of a Will, depending on the size of the deceased’s Estate, you may need to obtain Probate, close bank accounts, pay any liabilities or debts, arrange the funeral, sell a property, distribute the deceased’s personal possessions, as well as many other possible jobs. Whilst you could be in charge of how and when these happen, appointing a solicitor could prevent you from needing to make countless journeys to and from the deceased’s home; the Probate solicitors would carry out the tasks (or instruct someone to carry them out, depending on what needed completing), to finalise the deceased’s Estate. And, you do not need to worry about incurring legal fees: as an Executor, you are entitled to incur reasonable legal expenses to help finalise the deceased’s affairs.
