Renunciation of probate

If you have been appointed an executor in a Will, and you do not want to act in this role, you can use this document to refuse your appointment. People often find, particularly after the death of a friend or relative, that they have been appointed an executor of his or her Will. They may have been unaware of the appointment and may not wish to take on the responsibility. However, even if they were asked in advance whether they were prepared to act as an executor and agreed to do so, they have an opportunity to change their minds.
