Bankruptcy Search

Blanchards Offer A Comprehensive Bankruptcy Search To The Public Sector.

An estate administrator typically conducts a bankruptcy search on all heirs before administering an estate. In some cases, a beneficiary’s creditors may be entitled to their inheritance if they have been declared bankrupt.

For the protection of Personal Representatives, Blanchards undertake bankruptcy searches in the UK and internationally. This will alleviate any risks of future claims and ensure that the correct people benefit from the estate in question.

Please provide us with the full name, date of birth, and address of the subject of your search. We will provide you with a full report of our findings.



What is it? – Through online research, we determine if a beneficiary is, or has been bankrupt. This should be done for each Beneficiary as possible creditors would be entitled to their inheritance.

Why do we do it? – The law society strongly urge that bankruptcy searches should be done for each Beneficiary. Due to this, we provide this practice for all our cases and offer this service to 3rd parties also.

Do we charge? – Our hourly rate £145 + VAT per hour.

How long does it take? – This is case depending, but it is unlikely it would take more than an hour per Beneficiary. With some instances taking far less time.
