11. Are there any limitations of who can be my executor?

There are few limitations in relation to the choice of an executor.


But a person with the following attributes cannot be appointed as an executor: 

  1. Under 21 years old;
  2. suffers from mental/ severe physical disability to the extent that renders him incapable of managing his own affairs (Please see s.33 of Non-Contentious Probate Rules) (Cap.10A));
  3. in prison


The Court generally views that an insolvent person is less desirable to be appointed an executor.
