Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.

If Probate has been granted to you both, then the Banks etc will need signatures from you both to close the account(s).

If you have an Executors Bank account, it would be normal that both of you have to sign any cheques which are going out.

As regards ***** ***** you both will also need to sign the Contract for Sale and the Land Registry Transfer, which transfers the property to the Buyer.

I hope this clarifies the legal position to you.

Kind Regards
