There may be a number of subscriptions, agreements, direct debits and e-invoices in the deceased’s name. Any agreements and insurance policies should either be terminated or transferred to someone else. Take one bill at a time and contact the sender to find out what you need to do. You will gradually become aware of which bills continue to arrive in the deceased’s name. These may include:
cable television and streaming services
internet subscriptions and other digital services
agreements for electricity
heating oil, gas, refuse collection, water and wastewater
home insurance and other insurance policies
newspaper and magazine subscriptions
leasing agreements for vehicles, televisions or other technical equipment
rental agreements or hire purchase agreements.
Don’t hesitate to ask others for help in cancelling or transferring contracts and subscriptions. Using Efterlevandeguidens Checklist, you can make lists to divide responsibility.
You will need to cancel or transfer newspaper and magazine subscriptions and memberships in associations. Many associations will be unaware that a member has died until you contact them. This may involve a good deal of conversation if the deceased was an active joiner of associations.
Don’t hesitate to ask someone close to you for help.
Public authorities receive updates from the population register on a daily or weekly basis, so you will not need to inform them of the death.
When it comes to the private sector, only companies that subscribe to Statens personadressregister (SPAR) receive information that someone has died. Many companies do not do so and will therefore continue to send post to the deceased. When this happens, it is up to you to inform them.
Clubs and associations seldom know about the death of a member and may therefore continue to send post after the death. How long depends on the regularity with which they normally send out information.
Will you receive direct ads addressed to the estate?
Some companies send direct ads in response to a death. Other direct ads may continue to arrive in the deceased’s name. If you do not wish to receive advertisements, you can request an ad block from SPAR. You should bear in mind that it can take up to three months before the flow of advertisements decreases.
