Is there a disadvantage to decline to serve as co-representative of an estate? 1 Answers as of September 11, 2017

Co-executors were appointed in the will. It was suggested that one decline due to not living in the area. Why this would be recommended? Is the declination taking one person out of decision making or just signing documents?
