WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EVENT OF MY DEATH ?

If there is a secondary access named on your box, this person may continue to have unrestricted access to your safe deposit box in the event of your death.


The secondary renter should notify CSD of your death and will need to produce a death certificate which we will scan into our system and return. Once probate has been granted, your account will be closed and should the secondary renter wish to continue to keep valuables at CSD, he/she will be asked to open a new account in his/her own name.

​

Where you are the sole renter on the box (i.e. there is no secondary renter), the person reporting your death should bring a copy of the death certificate to our offices. The certificate will be scanned into our system and returned. Only supervised visits will be permitted to the box and no items can be removed until probate is granted.
