If someone close to you has passed away, I have extensive experience in guiding you through the legal formalities necessary to wind up the affairs of the deceased. If the person owned most assets jointly with you or another party, it may be that our involvement may be limited to arranging the transfer of a family home into one name.
If the deceased owned substantial assets in his or her own name, and left a valid Will, then you may need to obtain Probate in order to sell or transfer those assets. A common example is a single pensioner who has died in a nursing home, whose estate is entitled to a refund of the accommodation bond.
On the other hand, if the deceased owned substantial assets in his or her own name but died without having ever made a Will, then you may need to obtain Letters of Administration to deal with the assets. This is similar but slightly more complex.
