Miss Cook sadly passed away in hospital, leaving her home empty. The property soon came on the council’s radar following multiple reports of anti-social behaviour at the address, including the police being called to a break-in by a gang of youths.

Neighbours were also concerned that Miss Cook’s garden was becoming extremely overgrown (given that she had been in hospital for a considerable amount of time before she passed away) and it was even reported that a tree was growing through the kitchen window.

Although Miss Cook was estranged from her family, we were able to identify and trace a niece as next of kin. We offered the niece our services including assistance with probate and with the help of one of our panel solicitors, the estate has now been administered and the house has been sold and put back in to use.
