If the Estate has not gone through probate, then we are not able to open an Estate account to deposit the DRS/Stock Certificate.
If the estate has gone through probate, we can deposit the DRS/Stock Certificate if ownership has already been changed from the deceased person to their estate. The Transfer Agent, shown on the DRS/Stock Certificate, can assist in registering the DRS/Stock Certificate properly.
Please send us a copy of the death certificate and a copy of the DRS/Stock Certificate via physical mail, e-mail or fax (see our contact page) along with contact information for the executor. A Qtrade agent will review and get back to the executor within one week.
Please refer to this question for details and fees to deposit a DRS; and, refer to this question for details on opening an Estate Account.
