Can I retire?  

An Executor can renounce their appointment immediately, but once an Executor has begun to deal with the deceasedís estate they can not retire until the estate has been fully dealt with, unless someone with an interest in the estate obtains an order of the Court to discharge the Executor.

If you have been appointed as an Executor, you will need to consider carefully whether you wish to act before you take any steps.
