I reduce the stress involved at the process . I set out the process and the time scale, so you know what to expect.
Locate the original Will. It will name the Executors, who become the trustees of all of the deceased’s assets, from the date of death.
If the house of deceased is vacant, make sure it is insured and secure.
Order a death certificate for the deceased.
You should advise the state pension that the death has occurred, to avoid over payments being made to the account.
Print off bank statements, policy documents and other assets to begin preparing a schedule of assets for the deceased.
