What to do if someone dies
Secure properties and valuables
Immediately after someone dies it is important to secure their home, money and valuables.
You should do all of the following:

- store their car in a safe place
- arrange for their bank account to be frozen, unless it is a joint account
- store jewellery or other valuables in a safe place
- check insurances are in place for the home, vehicles and contents.
