FAMILY TREE SOLUTIONS are well established genealogists and since 2008 have offered a specialist service in probate genealogy.
Our preferred way of working is to act under instructions from solicitors to compile family trees and to trace living relatives and potential heirs. We do NOT normally trawl the Bona Vacantia List in search of potential cases and then hunt down beneficiaries to sign them up for a percentage of their share of the estate.
Our work involves complex and time consuming research and investigation. We handle sensitive data and issues with discretion and professionalism. The nature of the work means that we cannot always guarantee an absolute timescale for completion but we work with our principals to set service level agreements from the outset. We will report back at pre-agreed stages and upon conclusion.
We will consider accepting any case, however complex or however staightforward it seems. In fact, as we have discovered, even the simplest case can turn out to be far more complex than anticipated;
Our costs will be agreed at the outset and will vary according to the complexity of the case. They will normally comprise a pre-agreed fixed fee or, occasionally, a percentage of the estate. We will also agree a reasonable sum for disbursements at the outset and if, subsequently, additional disbursements are shown to be necessary we will always seek written authority before proceeding. Please feel free to contact us to discuss the fee structure for any particular case.
MISSING BENEFICIARY INDEMNITY INSURANCE
In cases in which it is deemed necessary to take out such a policy we can prepare and present a case to the insurers to demonstrate that all reasonable efforts to trace all the beneficiaries ahve been made.
If you would like us to quote you for a particular case please contact us by email, in writing, by telephone or fax, or by completing and submitting the form below. When we have seen an outline of the case we will draw up a draft contract based on our estimate of costs and submit it to you for approval. Work will start when both parties have signed a contract. The basis of the contract will be a letter detailing the work to be carried out and the payment to be made for that work together with a copy of our Terms of Engagement. Signature of the Terms of Engagement by both parties signifies Offer and Acceptance of the terms laid out in the accompanying letter.
