If there is a Will

Executors must have their appointment confirmed by the Scottish Courts before they can begin the process of administering the estate. An executor named in the Will is known as an executor-nominate.

Unless an executor has chosen to decline office or is already deceased (known as predeceased), confirmation is obtained in favour of all the nominated executors.
