We understand bereavement can be a very difficult time for family and friends and we try to help where possible.


We can provide information about support services that may be able to offer help.

Bereavement Care exists to promote the well-being of people and to enable anyone bereaved by death to understand their grief and cope with their loss. Their services are free and confidential. For further information please visit the Bereavement Care website.

Use the NHS website to find your nearest Bereavement Support Service.

If you need advice and assistance with your finances, following a bereavement, our Benefits and Money Advice Team may be able to help.

When a tenant has passed away, we require a death certificate and 4 weeks notice.

If the property is a joint tenancy, we require a death certificate. Your housing officer will then be in contact to discuss changing joint tenancy to a sole tenancy.

For succession of a property, please contact your Housing Officer

Note: You need to have been in occupation of the property for at least 12 months, prior to the death.
