What is Kin: Search?

Administrator Search

As intestacy specialists, we typically:

  • locate kin within 48 hours;
  • ascertain which of the kin is willing to be an Administrator; and
  • look to reappoint your firm to administer the estate.

We undertake this in accordance with our transparency policy so that the beneficiaries are informed of all salient information such as who has died – this, in our experience, ensures better client care. Why miss out on fees? We refer the work back to the original solicitors. Do not refer a case on as bona vacantia until we have made our initial, no cost investigations on your behalf.
