In Florida, personal representative, the same job is also called an executor in other locations or other jurisdictions. But a personal representative is responsible for administering the estate of a person that’s deceased. So if that person appoints or the person is otherwise appointed by the court, as personal representative of the estate to handle the closing affairs, the sale of any property or the payment of any debts or the basically carrying out of any instructions that are contained within the will. So that personal representative, again, is what we would refer to as an executor in common language.
