Estates service

The death of someone close is always a difficult time. When you’re already experiencing grief, dealing with practical matters and making financial decisions can seem overwhelming. We have a dedicated Estates Team that are here to make the process as easy as possible.

What to do:

  • Contact us either by telephone 01296 41 41 51 or email
  • Send us the original death certificate or coroner’s certificate & a covering letter confirming the Executor(s) of the Estate.

What we will do:

  • Valuate any assets held with us at the date of death
  • Provide a current account valuation and cash statement
  • Advise of fees and specific details regarding the holdings and any additional information that may affect the disposal instructions.
  • Provide an instruction form listing all options available for the investments and cash.

Once UK Grant of Probate or Certificate of Confirmation (for Scottish residents) is granted we will need:

  • An original or sealed office copy of the UK Grant of Probate or Certificate of Confirmation and a completed instruction form signed by all the named Executors on the Probate / Confirmation.

When we close the account(s) we will provide:

  • BACS or cheque payment (if applicable)
  • Closing cash statements
  • Tax deduction certificates (if applicable)

We offer and accept the Additional Permitted Subscription:

  • With effect from 6 April 2015, where a person holding an ISA died on or after 3 December 2014 and that person was married or in a civil partnership, the surviving spouse/civil partner is entitled to an additional ISA allowance.
  • The additional allowance is equal to the value of the ISA(s) held by their spouse/civil partner as at the date of death (even where the spouse/civil partner does not actually inherit the ISA).
  • A certificate of Entitlement will be provided where applicable
