You may be familiar with the BBC programme 'Heir Hunters' featuring London based company Fraser & Fraser, if so you will be aware of the fact that heir hunting is tracing those people who are potentially entitled to the estate of a relative who died intestate (without making a Will).
If you have never heard of heir hunting then let us explain a little further. Most people have made a Will at some stage in their life which sets out who is entitled to their estate in the event of their death, unfortunately in the UK there are thousands of unclaimed estates because a deceased person had never made a Will and had no known living relatives. This is where we step in!
We spend our time researching, using our genealogy skills, to establish who is a distant relative to the deceased and to make contact with details of the case......most people have never even heard of the person in question!
