Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Is there a Property involved as well?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi hello no there is no property involved
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Then it is possible that you will be able to deal with the Transfer of the various assets to your mother without having to obtain Letters of Administration ( Probate)
You can ask the Building Society to pay the Funeral Bill Direct - and then ask them for the form which allows Small Estates to be transferred
The Shares can also be dealt with using the Small Estates process
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

You didn't explain how to deal with small claims where to start
Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
You should go to the Nationwide with the Death certificate and they will assist you with the forms.
You can either download and use the form I gave you the link to for the shares, or write to the Registrar and ask them to send you a form
