Thanks for your answer. One other question regarding this, the lady left some funds in cash at her home, a reasonable amount, what is the best way to handle this? I wanted to set up an estate account for the money but my bank could not do this in this case, since not under probate. I would prefer not to be holding cash in this way. There is still a bank account in her name with the Post Office, I have notified them by phone of her death, they are sending forms to me for release of funds. But there is still need for a safe place to hold her money until liabilities settled and relatives found. Many thanks
