RULE 6-421. TERMINATION OF APPOINTMENT OF PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE
If the account contains a request for termination, the approval of the final account terminates the appointment of a personal representative effective upon the distribution of all assets. If the final account is approved and does not contain a request for termination, the personal representative may petition the court for an order terminating the appointment. Notice of the petition shall be served on interested persons including creditors who have presented their claims and legatees who have not been paid in full. The notice shall advise the recipient of the right to request a hearing within 20 days after service. If no hearing is requested, or after hearing if one is timely requested, the court shall enter an appropriate order.
