Uncle died on the 9th
Takes a week to get the death certificate.
His pension payments will stop (have to be paid back) from the 9th onwards.
Meanwhile his flat needs to be cleared or what little money that remains in his back account will be drained away by rent to the council.
I can't get a solicitor (our old family one has retired and my Rottweiler (the one I set on people) doesn't do Wills or probate (probably doesn't pay enough) , I need a solicitor to tell me if it's OK to clear the flat. Does the content need to be valued? Pretty much worthless in fact it will cost at least to get it cleared.
I only have one day to get it cleared this week, and that's tomorrow. I want to be posting the keys to the council by the end of the week.
