Ease the stress
If it makes it easier for you, gather together every item of post, scrap of paper and bank statement relating to the deceased person and put them in a box or carrier bag and drop them off for us to sort out. We shall contact banks, building societies, benefit agencies and any other relevant organisations to work out exactly how much the deceased person’s estate is worth. Then we will arrange for the debts to be cleared. At this point we shall prepare full estate accounts and the beneficiaries will be paid their share of the estate. You will have the reassurance that all your Executors duties are being carried out correctly in accordance with the law.
We don’t know the beneficiaries and so, although we are happy to speak to them daily, we will not feel pressured into giving them their money before the matter has been dealt with properly. If they have any questions about their share of the estate, let them hassle us and not you!
