Frequently asked questions about the execution of wills
What does an execution of will cost?
An execution of wills is charged according to time and effort in an hourly fee. At Expertiva AG this is CHF 240.00 per hour plus VAT. We cannot offer charging on a commission basis or a flat fee and this is also legally not acceptable.
How long does an execution of will last?
An execution of a will takes different amounts of time and depends on the complexity. For simple cases, a reference value of 4 - 12 months is considered to be a good empirical value. In difficult cases, a division of the estate can take up to 3 years.
How can I appoint an executor?
An executor is appointed by a testamentary disposition of the testator. Usually this is a will, which is kept in a safe place or deposited with an official body.
Can I appoint only a natural person?
No. You can appoint both natural persons and legal entities. However, the appointment is highly personal. However, in the case of a natural person, there is a risk of default (illness, accident, death).
What happens if the heirs argue and do not agree?
An executor is supposed to bring about a peaceful & efficient settlement of the estate. In case of conflict, we mediate between the parties and always seek a solution that takes into account the interests of all parties in the best possible way.
Can the heirs dismiss the executor?
No. An executor is appointed by the testator and cannot be changed or removed by the heirs. However, the heirs are free to deviate from the inheritance distribution proposal unanimously.
