Administrator Searches

Designed for solicitors that become aware of a death where no Will has been left and there are no-known next of kin, this service is offered with 100% no risk, if we can’t find a suitable Personal Representative then there is no fee to pay

Before considering referring an estate to the Government Legal Department and missing out on the commercial opportunity, it is worthwhile establishing whether there are next of kin with a prior claim to the Crown and give yourself the opportunity to administer the estate.

We will conduct all of the work required to locate a relative who is willing and able to act as a Personal Representative, giving you the opportunity to then administer the estate. 95% of the potential Administrators we locate, go on to instruct our client.

Instruct us with 100% no risk

If the potential Personal Representative does not instruct you to act in the administration of the estate, then there is no fee to pay.

In a recent matter, we helped our solicitor client identify the sole heir to a £250,000 estate. Our client was not in touch with any next of kin to instruct them and so we set about reconstructing the family tree and identified a nephew whom we then located. He instructed our client to carry out the estate administration, and we only invoiced for our time spent once the Grant of Probate was obtained.

Furthermore, all administrator charges include a free Certainty Will search included in the fee.
