When a person passes away, their property is often left by will to relatives or (where no will has been made) through a set of legal rules that apply called the Intestacy Rules.
In some cases, the executors appointed to deal with the deceased’s property will need to make arrangements to sell that property. We can help you to deal with any sale and if you require further information, please call us or see our section relating to buying and selling a property.
However, if the property is not to be sold, it may be transferred to the beneficiaries of the will or the next of kin under the Intestacy Rules. This is known as an “Assent”. We can make arrangements to draw up the paperwork required to transfer the property into the names of the beneficiaries. We will also deal with registering the beneficiaries as the new legal owners at Land Registry.
