Notes:
The Law Institute has been concerned about complaints by beneficiaries against solicitor-executors who draw wills which provide excessive levels of remuneration for themselves. To avoid an application to the court for executor's commission, a will should include suitable clauses for charging commission or other remuneration. This article discusses these issues as well as having examples of testamentary remuneration clauses for executors commission, professional charging clauses, choice of charging commission or professional rate commission clause ; the article also discusses double-dipping, the solicitor-executor as witness and knowledge and approval of the clauses by testator
