Title Research was instructed to transfer over 5000 shares in Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. for Mr Richard Hill, who had died some considerable time before in 2003.
Upon review of the file, a senior member of the overseas assets team pointed out to the client that Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. did not exist in 2003 and the only way these shares would have existed is if the Deceased actually had shares in Cadbury as of his date of death.
The client confirmed that this was the case, following which Title Research investigated further and identified that as a result of the former Cadbury shareholding, Mr Hill would also have shares in Mondelez Inc. and The Kraft Heinz Company. Furthermore, if he had over 5000 shares in Dr Pepper, it is likely that the share balances in the additional holdings could increase his US estate in excess of $800,000.
