29A-3-608 Termination of appointment--General.
Termination of appointment--General.
Termination of appointment of a personal
representative occurs as provided in §§ 29A-3-609 to 29A-3-612, inclusive. Termination ends the
right and power pertaining to the office of personal representative as conferred by this code or any
will, except that a personal representative, at any time prior to distribution or until restrained or
enjoined by court order, may perform acts necessary to protect the estate and may deliver the assets
to a successor representative. Termination does not discharge a personal representative from liability
for transactions or omissions occurring before termination, or relieve the personal representative of
the duty to preserve assets subject to the personal representative's control, to account therefor and
to deliver the assets. Termination does not affect the jurisdiction of the court over the personal
representative, but terminates the personal representative's authority to represent the estate in any
pending or future proceeding.
