Deduct any Debts owed by the deceased

The deceased debts and liabilities should also be considered when valuing the estate. Establish the extent of these by making a list. This total will then be deducted from the deceased’s assets.
Areas to consider are:
• Outstanding mortgage balance(s)
• Unsecured lending, e.g. credit cards and personal loans
• Bank overdrafts
• Unpaid Income Tax
• Utility bills and Council Tax
• Funeral expenses
