If you are a solicitor or trustee charged with administering an estate, we know just how frustrating and time consuming it can be when not all of the beneficiaries can be found. Known beneficiaries may have moved on, changed their name, even died. Worse still, in cases of intestacy and unknown heirs, family trees have to be compiled, proof of the relationship to the deceased has to be collected, heirs have to be located. We at Harrisons Research & Genealogy, are experts in the field of probate genealogy, and are happy to undertake all aspects of research required to locate missing or unknown heirs, providing you with full reports and all the documentation you need, whilst being able to offer highly competitive rates.
We are more than happy to undertake work on either a fixed cost or a contingency basis.
For a fixed, hourly rate (plus expenses), we are able to work to a pre-arranged budget. We will provide you with comprehensive progress reports during the course of our research, and keep you informed of anticipated costs at all times.
We are also able to work on a contingency basis in which we receive a percentage share of whatever each beneficiary that we locate receives from the estate. Harrisons Research & Genealogy covers all expenses and research costs, without risk to the estate, even if no beneficiaries can be traced.
