Could Heir Hunters Be Coming Your Way?


 
Business,Research
engage an heir hunting company to conduct the research and find the heirs.

Heir Hunting companies also act independently researching cases of intestacy. Randomly, The Treasury Solicitor advertises for relatives to come forward and the probate genealogists will investigate in an attempt to find the heirs and reunite them with their inheritance.

The Heir Hunter will start by putting together a family tree which can be extensive and can lead them to distant relatives, sometimes abroad, who may have never known the deceased but who have a legitimate claim on their estate.

When the Heir Hunter calls these beneficiaries are at once surprised, suspicious, curious and ultimately pleased at the prospect of receiving a windfall out of the blue. Surprised, because they may never have known of the existence of the deceased. Suspicious, as anyone would be when a stranger calls and tells you, you are the heir to an estate. Curious, because they will learn a lot about their family that they never previously knew and pleased because they will potentially receive an inheritance that they never expected.

The Heir Hunter will ask the potential beneficiary to sign an agreement after which they will work on behalf of the heir to recover their rightful inheritance. A lot of work goes on after all the beneficiaries have been traced and the process can be a long one, especially if there are numerous and widespread heirs. The beneficiaries will not see this happening as once they have signed up they just have to sit back and wait while the heir hunters work on their behalf until they receive their inheritance.

Families move, fall out of touch and emigrate can therefore be spread around the country or even the world. Heir hunters often find branches of a family, all with an equal right to the deceased’s estate at different ends of the country. Often they don’t know of each other’s existence, or have been out of touch for so long they don’t know where their relatives live. The visit from the heir hunter can provide the first news of missing relatives in many years leading to the unexpected bonus for the family members of being able to get back in touch with each other.

So even if you think you have no immediate family, you may find that you are entitled to inherit from someone at the other end of the country and you could find an heir hunter calling at any time. ">When someone dies without a will their estate will become subject to the laws governing intestacy. Simply put, unless a living relative makes a claim for the estate it will pass to either the Crown, The Duchy of Lancaster or The Duchy of Cornwall. The best way to prevent this happening is, of course, to have a will in place that is both up to date and easily found. This is especially the case if you have a long term partner, and are not married, as if you die intestate they may not be able to claim as they are not a spouse or blood relative.

The process of claiming an intestate estate can be a long one, as all potential beneficiaries must be traced and receive their share. This is where the expertise of a professional probate genealogy or “Heir Hunting” company can prove invaluable. They have the expertise and resources to trace all potential beneficiaries and will often do so at their own risk in return for a percentage of the proceeds due to each heir who retains their services. This is a risky business for the heir hunter as the estate may be of low or no value and they could find themselves in a situation where they do not recover their investment. The bulk of the work of Finders probate genealogy company is for solicitors, or executors where there is a will in place but there are beneficiaries, the whereabouts of whom are not known. In order to trace the missing beneficiaries those responsible will engage an heir hunting company to conduct the research and find the heirs.

Heir Hunting companies also act independently researching cases of intestacy. Randomly, The Treasury Solicitor advertises for relatives to come forward and the probate genealogists will investigate in an attempt to find the heirs and reunite them with their inheritance.
