Actually, coping with the death of a loved one is a psychologically-trying time. In addition, it is burdened with a sense of uncertainty, grief, and emotional distress. Certainly it is not the right time to make any rushed decisions under these circumstances. Especially if there are pressing matters such as dealing with the general operating costs of any dwelling. For example, payment of taxes, mortgage or rent, insurance policies, unpaid debts, pending maintenance costs, etc. Moreover, you need to request the cancelation of all the regular services and utilities. Mainly, electricity, gas, water, Internet, telephone, cable TV, security system, household personnel, etc. In addition, it is necessary to clear out the deceased person’s belongings.
Ideally, all the above-mentioned tasks should be carried out with the unanimous consent of all the parties involved. However, this is not very common, since disagreements arise from the many and different emotions and interests at stake.
