Charlottesville, VA asked in Real Estate Law and Probate for Virginia

Q: If my father was my grandfather's executor and my father passes away does that responsibility come down to me?

My father was my grandfather's executor and my aunt and uncle were the administrators. My father passed away and I became his executor of estate and I am his only heir. Does his role as executor for his father's estate come to me? Or does it cancel him out and only the two administrators are left? The property is still in my grandfather's name. It never got changed.
