As an executor, you will have been granted probate to deal with the estate of a deceased person. Part of an executor’s duty is to settle any outstanding debts the deceased owed. A good place to start is to find out if the deceased had any debts, if so, did they have any PPI policies in place. At this state it is important to check if the deceased had any PPI policies and if they were mis-sold. The PPI could be attached to any loan or credit card.
This aspect of an executor’s duties is often overlooked, but it is important because it means that outstanding debts can be paid off without them being a burden on the family.
Once you’ve established there is PPI you need to make a claim. If the PPI was mis-sold you need to put in a claim for mis-sold PPI.
