Can I sell a car on behalf of someone who is deceased?

You can. We understand selling a loved one’s car after they’re gone can be an emotional experience, and we’ll do everything we can to make this as easy as possible for you.

Before you sell the car, you’ll need to get some extra documents together:

  • The owner’s death certificate

And one of the following

  • A letter from a solicitor detailing your right to sell the car
  • The car owner’s will identifying you as the executor

If the car has any outstanding finance, we’ll also need:

  • The finance settlement letter showing how much is owed and the finance company's bank details.
