How our service works
Administering an Estate can be challenging and time-consuming. Our first priority is to protect the Estate’s Assets. We’ll make sure Beneficiaries receive what’s due to them from the Estate promptly and impartially.
What the process includes
A dedicated service at a difficult time
If there’s a Will in place we’ll contact the main Beneficiaries to explain the terms so there’s no misunderstanding about the way in which the Estate will be distributed.
If there’s no Will and we’ve been appointed as Administrator we’ll contact those who benefit under the rules of Intestacy.
We’ll collect all relevant paperwork, such as insurance policies and savings and loan records and explain how we deal with each issue.
When the Administration is complete we’ll produce a set of accounts and send copies to the main Beneficiaries showing how we distributed the Assets and settled the liabilities and costs.
Reviewing the tax affairs of the person who had died and liasing with HM Revenue & Customs on behalf of the Estate.
Sorting out tax
Working out the different taxes that need to be paid when someone dies can be complicated – but you can trust us to make it as simple as possible.

Financial advice for Beneficiaries
If you’re a Beneficiary of an Estate, we may be able to offer financial advice to help you make the most of your inheritance – whether or not you’re currently a NatWest customer.
Our qualified advisers can help you decide how to make the most of your wealth and can offer guidance on investments, insurance, pensions and tax planning.
Fees apply for this service, however we can arrange an initial, no-obligation meeting to understand if financial advice would be suitable for you, and to clearly explain the charges and fees that would apply.
