Are you the beneficiary of an estate that you feel is being poorly or carelessly managed by the appointed executor? If so, then you may be able to petition the court to have that executor removed. Consulting with a team of estate disputes lawyers in Perth will help you determine where your rights lie on this issue and whether you should pursue the removal of an executor.
Do note that no court will grant a petition to remove an executor of a will just because that person is not siding with you in an estate dispute. On the contrary, to remove an executor of an estate, you will have to show significant grounds for removal. For instance, if an administrator is wasting the assets from the estate, stealing from the estate or has an apparent conflict of interest, the court may be willing to appoint a different executor.
