New deceased client - what are the pitfalls?

Client died in March 2012. Income was from property jointly with his wife, and he also had income from shares.

The client is new to me - he previously did his own tax returns.

I have been asked by his wife to complete the 2012 tax return. Can anyone give me advice on pitfalls I may expect?

And who signs the tax return?
