A probate court will issue an order releasing the administrator or executor from their duties when they have completed all of them, but can also happen in between if this individual decides to withdraw.

Sometimes, an executor can willingly withdraw from handling the estate. They can do this because of several reasons ranging from illness, old age, or lack of time. Before an executor can permanently resign, they need to sign a “deed of renunciation” document. This document will serve as proof of their resignation. Once the court approves the renunciation, their appointment is automatically canceled.
