FAQs & Advice

Not sure about something? Take a look at our FAQ section to see if we have the answer to your question, if we don't, please contact us today.

When someone dies somebody has to deal with their estate (the money, the property and possessions left.) by collecting all the money, paying any debts and distributing the estate to those entitled. The Probate Registry issues the document which is called a Grant of representation. 1. Probate issued to one or more of the executors named in the will. 2. Letters of administration (with will) issued when there is a will, but no executor named or unable to deal with the estate. 3. Letters of administration issued when your loved one has not made a will or it is not valid
In the event of a death, numerous people and organisations need to be informed, including:
  • Hospital and/or family doctor
  • Social services and district nurses
  • Car insurance
  • Employer or professional association
  • HM Revenue and Customs
  • Social security
  • Local council
  • Utilities (gas, electric, water, telephone, internet)
  • Credit card companies
  • Banks and building societies (accounts must be closed, and any joint accounts must be amended appropriately)
  • Investments and insurance policies (premium bonds are not transferable, which is why the Post Office issues a form that must be sent to the bonds and stocks office – for further advice, consult a financial adviser or accountant)
Arrange redirection of mail at the post office.
