These are the documents we always need:
- Death Certificate (if this is not available, the Interim Coroner’s Certificate)
- Proof of your identity: your passport, driving licence or residency card
These are the documents we may need, depending on the service provider:
- A Will, if one exists. You’ll need to upload the title page, the page with the Executor details and the signature page
- Proof of your address. A recent utility bill is preferred, but a council tax bill is also acceptable. If you don’t have either of these, a credit card, bank or building society statement issued in the last 3 months will also be accepted by most companies
For any documentation required, please upload either a scanned copy or a photograph. Photographs should be clear and capture the information clearly – we won’t be able to work with blurry images.
We will also ask you to provide additional information about the person who died, as part of the Probate application.
