When does an executor take control of the estate?


An executor typically takes control of an estate after the death of the individual who created the will (the testator). Once the testator passes away, the executor's role becomes active. However, before the executor can take control, the will must usually go through a legal process called probate, during which the court validates the will and appoints the executor. After this appointment, the executor can begin managing the estate according to the instructions laid out in the will and applicable laws.
