What to look for when choosing a company?

It’s important to choose the right company when searching for bereavement house clearance quotes. Picking an unlicensed company could see you out of pocket at a later date. You should look out for the following during your search:

    Icon PLI

    Public Liability insurance

    Make sure they have Public Liability insurance so you know you’re protected from any damage during the clearance. Rest assured, all our companies will have this as a requirement.

      Icon waste carriers licence

      Waste carriers license

      Ask them for their waste carriers license number and check this against the Environment Agency. This will mean they’re a licensed professional and can safely carry out your house clearance.

      Icon cheap quotes

      Ask about extra costs

      The company should inform you of any charges to dispose of certain items. These are called Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) fees. If they don’t mention this, be aware they may fly-tip your items.

        Do I have to be present for the clearance?

        It's entirely up to you if you'd like to be there for the house clearance.

        It can be upsetting to see your loved one's belongings again, so there is no pressure to be present. Our licensed and insured house clearance companies can take care of all the hard work for you.

        Depending on the situation, the house clearance company can liaise with your solicitor to arrange key pickup. Alternatively, the company can plan to pick up the keys from a neighbour, relative or estate agent.

          Who pays for house clearance after death

          Who pays for house clearance after death?

          House clearance costs are typically covered by the deceased’s estate. If there is a will, the executor will have to cover the cost. If there is no will, it falls to the administrator.

          If there are any valuable assets left in the estate, the company will use this to offset the cost of the clearance. If there are no or not enough valuables to cover this, then the executor will have to pay.
