How do I go about selling the car of a friend who has passed away?

A family friend has died and has no living relative in this country. I will sell her car and send the proceeds to her daughter in Canada. How does this affect signing the log book since the owner is deceased?

If you have the vehicle log book (V5C) Write a letter explaining your relationship to the person who died, the date they died and who should be paid any vehicle tax refund. Send the letter to the DVLA Sensitive Casework Team with the right part of the V5C:
