Hi there,

Thanks for your enquiry.

If your sister has asked to be removed as Executor of your Father's Will, a letter to a Solicitor confirming this, is not legally binding.

In order for your sister to be removed as Executor, she has to sign a formal document called a Deed of Renunciation, which a Solicitor would prepare. Alternatively, your Father would have needed to change his Will, leaving her out as an Executor.

Therefore, if your sister has now changed her mind, she is entitled to remain as an Executor.

I hope this answers your question, but please let me know if you require any further clarification.

Kind Regards
