How did the TV Licensing Authority know my father had passed away?

Currently waiting for a response from British Broadcasting Corporation, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

My father passed away recently and a letter was sent to his empty house (not yet sold or transferred as probate is underway).

Yours faithfully,
