Hi Nikki, 

Once a Grant of Probate has been granted to the Executor or Administrator of the estate (possibly the owner), they will then have the authority to instuct works to commence. The Exec/Admin will usually be able to use the estate funds to pay for clearance works. That is assuming that the deceased has some funds in the bank to pay for it. If not, it may be the case that the property has to be sold in order to release funds and this may come too late to clear up the garden. You can check on this website to see if Probate has been granted and who is in charge of the estate. https://probatesearch.service.gov.uk/#wills

Kind regards,
