When appointing Executors, think carefully especially if your Will is to be drafted by a Charity or solicitors that they instruct to draft a Will on your behalf.
If you have relatives, be it, children, nieces, nephews, to mention but a few, they are preferable as Executors to appointing a Charity especially if you have given them gifts in your Will.
If you appoint a Charity, your loved ones might find the process of contacting the Charity to chase the administration of the estate time consuming and tedious.
Lastly, your loved ones might end up getting less of your estate that you anticipated because professional Executors have to be paid for administering your estate whereas your relatives do not.
