Heir Hunters

What is Heir Hunting?

You may have heard of the term from the BBC programme ‘Heir Hunters’. ‘Heir Hunting’ refers to tracing Beneficiaries who would be entitled to an estate. This is carried out when the Intestate (the deceased) did not write a Will. In addition, the family could not be located to claim said estate.  In most cases the Beneficiary will not know the Intestate, being a distant relative. It is our duty to locate the Beneficiaries, inform them of the estate and begin the process of transferring it. You could call us Heir Hunters.

What makes us expert Heir Hunters?

Our expert team of genealogists can solve cases across the globe, including Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, South Africa, the USA, Canada, Jamaica, Thailand, the Philippines, and many more. We are constantly renewing our research techniques and believe that our modern methods, coupled with traditional techniques, make our ability to trace anyone almost unparalleled. We have been Heir Hunters for over a decade and have worked on every case imaginable. No job is too big or small.
