Next of Kin Tracing Services
This service is predominately used by hospitals, councils, coroners, care homes and other public sector service providers. We usually trace the first next-of-kin within 24 hours, often in time for the Deceased's funeral and saving you considerable time and expense.
All services provided to the public sector are free of charge.
If the Estate worth is over £5,000, we will ask the next of kin to sign a commission fee agreement with us. We re then paid at the same time as the heirs, when the estate is distributed.
If an estate is under £5,000, we will trace the next of kin completely free of charge to anyone.

Probate & Missing Will Searches
We offer these searches to Solicitors dealing with a deceased's estate as well as to the general public for personal interest/research or because you are dealing with a deceased's estate.
£150+VAT for a Will search of Solicitors that are local to the area where the deceased lived
£30+VAT for a Will search that has already passed through Probate.
Are you aware of an empty house or an abandoned home? Generally, an empty house will be privately owned but the owner is long since deceased. We can check any property that you provide the address for to locate the legal owners. In return we offer a finder's fee if we are able to finalise the deceased's estate.
Free of charge - we pay you a 'finders fee' as described above.
