Taylor&Emmet LLP have a specialist team serving both the public and private sector in all matters relating to inheritance and asset tracing.
Working alongside our trusted partners in this field, we have extensive experience of assisting local authorities, housing associations, care providers, hospitals and funeral directors in locating next of kin and administering intestate estates.
Sadly, around two thirds of the population die intestate and some will have all lost contact with their family. This creates a problem for the local authority or the individual who may be tasked with the responsibility of having to arrange the funeral and attempting to locate the next of kin. As well as the administrative and financial burden of arranging a Public Health funeral, a time-consuming referral to the Government Legal Department may also be necessary.
Our Inheritance Tracing team offer a more efficient and cost-effective solution.
