When a loved one passes, it is an extremely difficult time for a family. It can be difficult to know where to begin, especially if you are responsible for their estate. Our team have put together a guide to help guide you through the process. Below are some important first steps to take.

Our team of friendly wills solicitors are always more than happy to answer any questions you may have and can be by your side to assist every step of the way. 

Register the death 

The sooner this is done the better. It can be done by family members or the executor of the state, and if the death happened in Scotland then it must also be registered here. 


Your loved ones will outline their final wishes. You may know where it is, or you could need to contact your loved ones' solicitor. It is also possible that there has been no will left

Regardless of the situation, our team can help you through each process, including if you are an executor.
