The estate inventory must be carried out within three months of your loved one’s death. The Tax Administration may grant additional time upon request. You can enlist a solicitor to carry out the estate inventory.
You will need a report on the family relationships of the deceased person from the age of 15 until their date of death for the estate inventory to determine the heirs of the deceased.
The estate inventory deed drafted during the estate inventory process must include the deceased’s assets as well as the estate’s debts and deductions. If the deceased had a will or a prenuptial agreement, they will also be appended to the estate inventory deed.
Accounts, safety deposit boxes and other assets
We will automatically send information about the deceased’s accounts and other assets with Nordea to their last known address for the purpose of drafting the estate inventory deed. The balance statement of a widow(er) needs to be requested separately. You should also request balance statements from your loved one’s other banks.
If the deceased had a safety deposit box, you must take inventory of the assets and documents held in the safety deposit box. Book an appointment in branch and we will help you with the inventory. Call Nordea Customer Service, tel 0200 70 000 (local rates apply), to book the appointment.
