Title 13. Decedents' Estates, Guardianships, Transfers, Trusts, and Health Care Decisions
Chapter 16. Probate of Wills and Administration
Article 6. Personal Representative; Appointment, Control and Termination of Authority
Sec. 13.16.280. Termination of appointment; general.
Termination of appointment of a personal representative occurs as indicated in AS 13.16.285 — 13.16.300. Termination ends the right and power pertaining to the office of personal representative as conferred by AS 13.06 — AS 13.36 or any will, except that a personal representative, at any time before 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.
