What to do when someone dies - What information do we need when someone dies?

What information do we need when someone dies?

You need to let us know:

  • The name of the deceased person and the date they died; 
  • The address where they lived 

If the deceased was a Council Tax payer and their home is now unoccupied we will need the following information:

  • The names and addresses of any executors to the will of the deceased person; 
  • The name and address of an appointed solicitor if you wish the council to deal direct with a solicitor.

What if I am unable to provide all of this information?

There is no need to worry. If you are providing this information only a short time after a person's death you may not know all the above details. Further information can always be provided once it is known.
