As a professional probate research agency wo do manage, in the majority of the cases and by using all available means, to find heirs and to avert the law of succession of the State (treasury inheritance law) in their favor.
To this end we not only offer our extensive know-how and long years of experience, we also have at our disposal many auxiliary means such as specialist literature and our own files as well as access to external data bases. We conduct our research not only by way of correspondence but also personally and locally through our employees in archives and offices.
To guarantee the successful conclusion to a testamentary matter we also procure the necessary documents of civil status and assist the heirs – in cooperation with notaries and specialist solicitors – with the application for the certificate of inheritance and the final settlement after the issuance of the certificate of inheritance.
For curators of the estate our service is free of charge. When we locate heirs we arrange for a contingency fee in the form of a percentage share of the estate. The contingency fee only is due in the case that assets are payable to the heirs and it covers all services rendered.
Up to the time when the assets are due to be paid out to the heirs we advance all arising expenses.
