What if the deceased had a mortgage?
A mortgage (joint or sole) held in the name of the deceased person will continue even after death.
If the deceased was the sole borrower and registered owner of the security property then the estate representative will need to determine how the balance outstanding on the mortgage will be repaid.
If the deceased was the joint borrower and owner of the mortgaged property then the surviving borrower/registered owner should contact our team on 1800 033 139 in the first instance. They will be able to assist with the next steps in the process.
