Common Questions and Answers

Do I need the account number and sort code to use Settld?2023-03-18T14:10:13+00:00

This information is not mandatory, but does speed up the process for Banks if you have it to hand. We do need the deceased’s full name, their registered address on the account, and their date of birth.

What will happen to joint and sole bank accounts?2023-03-18T14:14:19+00:00

For the vast majority of banks, sole accounts are frozen and closed. Joint accounts are transferred into a sole account, under the name of the living account holder.

What if there is no will – can I still use Settld?2023-03-18T14:15:06+00:00

Yes. However, if there is no will, most banks will ask a “Next of Kin” to act on behalf of the person who died. Please check who the immediate next of kin should be here, as per the rules of Intestacy.

I want to use Settld on behalf of the next of kin – is this possible?2023-03-18T14:15:35+00:00

Yes. The Settld form will ask for consent from the next of kin. They will be asked to sign a short form, saying that they are happy for you to act on their behalf. Settld will not be able to notify any companies, without this information.

Can Settld obtain account statements and interest certificates for me?2023-03-29T11:59:10+00:00

If you need account statements and interest certificates, please call the bank. For privacy reasons, Settld cannot do this for you.

Can Settld give me a list of direct debits for the bank account?2023-03-18T14:16:39+00:00

Yes, please call the bank directly. For privacy and security reasons, Settld cannot obtain this information. Most banks will send the list of direct debits by post.

Should I send the closure form to Settld or the bank?2023-03-18T14:17:36+00:00

You will need to send the closure form to the bank directly. For privacy and security reasons, Settld cannot do this for you. However, we may be able to help you fill the form.

How long will it take for the bank to stop sending mail in the name of the person who died?2023-03-18T14:19:18+00:00

Most companies take up to 6 weeks to update their systems. Unfortunately, timeframes are set by each bank, and Settld does not have direct control over this process. Wherever possible, Settld works with companies to provide a better bereavement service, so please let us know if problems persist and we will flag this to the Bank for you.
