1. Secure the Home. If the home is empty, one of the first things you should do is ensure that it is secure. Close all doors and windows and lock these where possible.
2. Check the House for Valuable Items. Locate and secure any valuable items in the house. The best way is to go room by room, checking in drawers and cupboards for smaller items such as jewellery.
3. Inform Organisations of the Owner’s Death. Get in touch with the local council to let them know that the person has died and also inform them that the property is empty.
4. Get the Property Valued. Get a professional Probate valuation of the property from local estate agents. It is important to obtain a valuation for Probate purposes.
5. Calculate and Pay Inheritance Tax. Once you know the value of the Estate, you’ll need to work out whether Inheritance Tax is due. This is a complicated process as Inheritance Tax liability varies depending on a number of factors such as who will be inheriting from the Estate and whether the deceased was married to someone who died before them.
6. Apply for the Grant of Probate. The Grant of Probate is a legal document which gives a specified person the legal authority to deal with a deceased person’s affairs.
7. Instruct an Estate Agent and Prepare the House for Viewings. While you’re awaiting the Grant of Probate, you can put the property on the market. You may want to give the house some TLC before the estate agent takes the property photographs, but certainly before any viewings take place.
8. Instruct a Conveyancer or Conveyancing Solicitor. Once the property is on the market, you should start thinking about which Conveyancer or Conveyancing Solicitor you would like to instruct.
9. Clear the Property. Once a sale has been agreed on the property, you should start to clear out the contents. On average, Conveyancing usually takes around 8 to 12 weeks, but it can be significantly longer or shorter depending on the circumstances.
