In 40% of cases where Title Research has been asked to check the accuracy of family trees prior to distribution, we have found mistakes or gaps in research.
Our new service, Family Checker™
, provides you with a low cost opinion on family tree information provided by relatives or friends of the Deceased. Our professional probate genealogist's opinion will identify potential gaps or inaccuracies in the family tree that may require further investigation, reducing your exposure to risk.
Personal Representatives and their advisors have a legal obligation to distribute to those entitled. To help minimise the risk of distributing the estate incorrectly, we suggest undertaking Family Checker™ on intestate and partially intestate estates when the family tree has not been supplied by a professional.
