How do you deal with an uncooperative executor?

If a joint executor becomes uncooperative, you need to consider if you can continue to handle the administering of the Estate without them. However, the uncooperative executor agrees to give up their role in a Deed of Renunciation. In more extreme cases, it is also possible to apply to the court to have the executor removed.
