After a death, there are many legal details to hammer out. While it is not necessary to get a solicitor, it is strongly recommended. A solicitor will make sure all the ‘t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted”. The time following a death of a loved one is extremely emotional, and even the closest family will have disagreements over the most trivial matters. To make sure there is still peace in the family, it can be a good idea to let a solicitor figure things out.
Before getting in touch with a solicitor there are several important documents that you need to gather. Those include:
- Bank Statements
- Insurance Policies
- Vehicle and Boat Log Books
- Tax Documents
