Inheritance Recovery Specialists

What are unclaimed assets?

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

Unfortunately, assets can be missed at this stage, and these become unclaimed. The funds may be held by financial institutions or paid into Court.

What are unclaimed assets?

Unclaimed assets are funds whose rightful owner has lost contact with the financial institution that holds them. This can be created by people moving home or upon death  the company is not informed. When mail is returned by the Royal Mail as "Gone Away" no more post is set to that address.
