Executor wishing to step down after probate granted

Does anyone have advice they could offer please where an executor wishes to step down and there is a willing replacement. Will the Court sanction an application made with consent from incoming and outgoing execs?
Thanks in advance

Yes, the court will readily replace a PR by consent. The application is made by Part 8 claim to the Chancery Division. The last two consensual ones I’ve done were granted on the papers.
