Sell Shares from a Deceased Estate with Ease

Deceased Estate with Ease

Being responsible for an estate can feel overwhelming. In the instance of possession of shares, liquidating them can feel complicated. With Sell My Shares, you can sell shares from a deceased estate in just three short steps.

Most estate executors aren’t familiar with selling shares or transferring them. With the right help, you can ensure that those shares are given the treatment that they require.

The Three-Step Process of Selling Shares

In order to sell shares from a deceased estate, there are three steps required: completing the online share sale form, completing the ID check, and emailing a copy of the probate or the will & death certificate.

1.) Online Share Sale Form. The first step is to complete the online share sale form. A few basic pieces of information are required here, including the Security Reference Number (SRN). You will also be asked what quantity of shares you want to sell and where the money will go.

2.) Online ID Check. When the sale form has been completed, you should receive an email requesting verification of your ID. This starts with an acceptance of the terms and conditions. Next, call the automated phone line and leave a message. Finally, using the third-party verification platform, provide 100 points of ID.

3.) Send Required Documents. This is the only difference between estate sales and selling shares from another type of account. Email a copy of the probate or copies of the death certificate and will. The documents need to be certified (this can be done by a lawyer, nurse, pharmacist, or anyone who can certify documents). Ask them to certify a copy using the required text featuring the correct date. Then, send a legible photo or scan of that certified copy to the Sell My Shares inbox.
