Our free genealogy and probate-related services provide proven solutions to the public sector. We work on all cases whether there is an estate or not.
With our approachable expert staff, we look to become the long-term partner to the public sector: providing answers to help reduce the burden of welfare funerals and other associated costs.
TSol rules stipulate that they will not consider an estate to be bona vacantia where there is even a hint (such as anecdotal evidence) that there is next-of-kin.
Kin: Search is the proactive approach: we identify, locate and prove entitlement of the next-of-kin; they can register the death, organise the funeral and apply for probate to claim the estate assets.
We have a policy of full transparency. We inform the next of kin of all salient information, so that they can make an informed decision before entering into an agreement.
Whether you are in contact with kin or not, we can provide you with all necessary paperwork to prove eligibility including family tree, supporting certification, certified copy of ID documents.
Until such time as a next of kin is located, the Council has to safeguard the deceased’s property. If the Authority refers the matter as bona vacantia the TSol process could take months. Our services obviate such risk and delay. In conjunction with our trusted partners we will secure and insure property within 24 hours.
