Hello,
Executors act jointly and severally anyway so you do not need to provide this in your Will but you may do so if you wish to make it absolutely clear that that is what you want.
Hope this helps

So is it best to write " I appoint jointly and severally .........and ......... as my executors" or " I appoint .........and ......... as my executors jointly and severally" or " I appoint .........and ......... as my executors with jointly and several authority"?
