Settld Website

Hi, I’m new here just starting out the process of apply for letters of administration and I am sure I will need help further down the line but right now I am just notifying organisations. Some organisations such as an energy company suggest I use the website Settld. Has anyone used it? It is supposed to be a free service but I wasn’t sure on agreeing to their terms and conditions. 

Thanks for your help.

    Settld covers things like private sector companies, not just the main public sector.

    OP, which bits of the T&C are you worried about?
    Googling on your question might have been both quicker and easier, if you're only after simple facts rather than opinions!  
  • I am just interested to see if anyone has used their free notification service. I am a bit wary of signing up for things. They say by signing up I would grant them authority for 12 months and give them permission to 
    1. To notify Service Providers of the death, using the information you provide.
    2. To communicate and share the information with Service Providers on your behalf.
    3. To request Service Providers to close, transfer, amend or gain information about the accounts of the Deceased.
    4. To receive date of death balances in respect of the accounts of the Deceased.

    Hard to see how they could help you if they don't have consent to do the above, depending on what it is you want them to help with. You won't be the only person who has asked this sort of question, so why not contact them: https://www.settld.care/contact/

    Although it's always helpful to hear from others who have actually used a particular service provider, bear in mind that their experiences may not be typical - and you don't know how good the 'user' was as doing what they needed to do.
