What to do when someone dies? The Executors role

As an Executor of a Will when someone dies, this role can be a stressful one, especially after losing a loved one. You are legally responsible for administrating the estate. This often can take quite a few months.

But this is where EAD Solicitors can assist you and ease the burden of these tasks. Just follow these simple steps and our Wills and Probate Solicitors will help you along the way.

After death, register the death within 5 days, and start arrangements for the funeral.

Gather together all of the deceased documents, and make a list of all personal possessions and keep them secure and safe.
