Executor (Testamentsvollstrecker)

The German equivalent of an executor of the estate is called “Testamentsvollstrecker”. He is called to execute the testamentary dispositions of the deceased. Unless otherwise provided by the testator, his tasks include the administration and the distribution of the estate. See § 2205 and § 2204 of the German Civil Code (BGB). Upon application, the probate court (Nachlassgericht) issues a German certificate of executorship to him (some exceptions apply).
