Search

The majority of Finders searches are conducted on behalf of solicitors who are dealing with an estate. They may already know the whereabouts of some heirs, but may ask Finders to work independently to trace any missing or unknown heirs. Finders have four fee options for professional clients to choose from, according to the circumstances of the case.

In other cases Finders will research cases at their own risk. This is because often, when someone dies with no known next of kin potential beneficiaries cannot be traced because there is no one who can authorise payment from the Estate. Any heirs to the estate may never know that they are potential beneficiaries causing the estate to remain unclaimed forever with the entitled beneficiaries never receiving their rightful inheritance.

When Finders learns of such situations, there is a choice. We can either do nothing and let the estate remain unclaimed or go into “heir hunting” mode and attempt to trace any heirs who are entitled beneficiaries to the estate. We do this at our own expense and run the risk that there are no surviving heirs and we will receive nothing for the work we have done in the attempt to trace any beneficiaries forcing us to write off our investment in the often complex research

When we do trace an entitled beneficiary we ask them to sign a commission agreement with us which entitles us to be paid a part of the beneficiary’s net share of the estate. This is the only payment Finders ask for, or receive and we are only paid at the same time as the beneficiary.

When Finders have completed the search and traced all the entitled beneficiaries the work doesn’t stop. Finders will compile a detailed report which will then be submitted to the solicitors responsible for winding up the estate and will answer any questions from beneficiaries while they wait to receive their inheritance.
