How does inheritance recovery work?

During estate administration, the assets and liabilities of a deceased person are accounted for by their executor/administrator.

Unfortunately, if a comprehensive list of assets is not provided some can be missed at this stage, and this is where we come in.

We are able to identify these outstanding assets and contact those entitled to claim the funds.


How much do you charge?

Our fee is charged as a percentage of the funds we recover. Our fees, which will not exceed 20%, and any disbursements will be deducted from the funds recovered. At no time will we ask you for money.

Should an executor be doing this?

It is the responsibility of an executor/administrator to identify and account for the assets and liabilities of an estate prior to distribution of funds.

When missed/unclaimed funds are identified, we will work with the executor/administrator to claim the funds for distribution.

We work with executors and administrators obtained from probate documentation, rather than carrying out family research on intestate estates, to identify missing beneficiaries
