Probate letter to mortgage company

When applying for a grant of probate, the executor(s) named in a Will or the administrators must determine the value of the deceased's estate at the time of his/her death and, in this process, you can use this letter to request the information you will need from the deceased's mortgage company. This letter will also instruct the mortgage company to cancel any direct debits. You will need to enclose a copy of the death certificate. Please note that this document can only be used in England & Wales or Northern Ireland. It is only suitable for use if the deceased held the mortgage in his or her sole name.
