Common Questions

How will I be charged?

Should our free initial assessment determine that there are gaps requiring investigation we will look to supply you tailored fee options for you to consider on a no-obligation basis.

What are the main causes of inaccuracy?

It is not uncommon for families to have secrets. The most likely culprit of inaccuracies derives from lack of knowledge.

What is the role of insurance?

We recommend our services run alongside insurance. There is always a risk that beneficiaries may not be located by professional genealogists owing principally to official clerical errors and/ or illegitimate children.

Can I just get MBI?

If MBI is required, insurers invariably require a report from a probate genealogist. We look to fulfil this function for free using an insurance broker.
