Inheritance Recovery Specialists

Perane and Charities

Leaving a will is an essential step to ensure your estate is distributed in accordance with your wishes.

Many people decide to leave a specific gift to charity in their will. Others decide to leave the residue of their estate (after any specific bequests have been settled) to charity.

Unfortunately, during administration of an estate assets can be missed, these being unknown to the executors and beneficiaries.

Perane, as part of its process of searching for unclaimed assets, have located hundreds of thousands of pounds that have been left to charities as part of the residual  funds in wills, but not accounted for.
