Unclaimed and Un-administered
As with many of our cases, an unclaimed entitlement can remain dormant for many years, and even if the original beneficiary has passed away, there is usually somebody who is entitled to make a claim through the line of succession.
Miss L Chester passed away in 1970 at the age of 84, leaving her entire estate to her nephew, Mr M Goss, who sadly died three years later, leaving an un-administered asset in Miss Chester's Estate. Mr Goss also left a Will, appointing two Executors to his Estate. Utilising our in-depth research skills, we managed to locate records for both of these individuals, who had both sadly deceased since, the last of whom being Mr C Freill, who passed away in 2001, granting the execution of his Will to two relatives, one of whom passed away in 2007; the remaining relative was therefore entitled to the inheritance we believed was unclaimed.
The research team working on the case was then able to locate and make contact with this individual using public records, whereupon she then agreed to engage our services. After requesting a full recovery, our client received over £2,500 on the realisation of a dormant asset, unclaimed for almost 40 years.
