What information do you need to inform Nationwide Mortgages of a death?

You will need the following on hand when telling Nationwide Mortgages of a death:

  • person's full name

  • person's date of birth

  • date of their death

  • personal representative’s name and address (if you know this) so we know who we can write and give information to.

  • death certificate

What Happens Next?

Once you have notified Nationwide Mortgages of the death, they will carry out any steps to either close the account or make any necessary transfers. If the account is in a sole name or an ISA, any funds will be transferred to a beneficiary, and the account will be closed. If the account is in joint names, the account will be transferred to the surviving holder.
