Locating kin for a statutory will application
As well as locating missing beneficiaries we can identify and locate missing family members as required by the Court of Protection when making an application for a statutory will.
We understand that people traced in these cases may well be adversely affected by the terms of a statutory will and as such are unlikely to be beneficiaries. We tailor our approach accordingly. Our fees are extremely competitive and the work that we do in these matters does not therefore substantially deplete the person’s finances.
