We will note the death of a shareholder on the share register on receipt of an original copy of the death certificate. However, in order to enable us to recognise you as executor to an estate you will need to send us a Court sealed office copy of the grant of probate together with all of the share certificates representing the shareholding of the deceased shareholder. We will register the probate and return the Court sealed office copy of the grant of probate to you together with the endorsed share certificate(s).
The same procedure is required if you have been appointed as an Administrator to an estate, but in this case you will need to send us a Court sealed office copy of the grant of letters of administration.
If the shareholder died without leaving a Will, the value of the shareholding is less than £5,000 and the value of the estate is less than £20,000 then the small estates procedure may be appropriate. Please contact our office for further information.
