Seek Kin. Seek Probate Resolution.

We provide a range of services, some of which are free, all of which have been developed to help.


Use our genealogist expertise with our core services of Kin: Search & Kin: Verify. With our free initial assessment and tailored fee options, we look to help you reduce your risk whilst providing better client care.


Using our expertise we have successfully provided unanticipated windfalls to beneficiaries at home & abroad. If you have been contacted then we believe you may have a connection to an estate we are investigating.

Public Sector

We offer free services to the public sector that ensure high standards of delivery whilst reducing risk and cost. Our Kin: Search service will typically locate a next-of-kin so that a welfare funeral can be avoided.

About Us

We cherish our reputation and accordingly approach each case diligently, regardless of the size or complexity of the matter. We consider our relationships are based not only on our technical ability but also our principles of transparency and accountability. We take responsibility seriously: this goes beyond ensuring that our work is of the highest quality, it means that we also look to put something back into the wider community and leave a positive legacy.
