Unclaimed Estates Search

Find Unclaimed Money and Lost Assets Owed Deceased Family Members

Government custodians are holding billion of pounds in unclaimed money owed missing owners and heirs. Assets go unclaimed after the original owners or rightful heirs fail to communicate an interest in them over a period of time.

Most missing heirs do not know they are entitled to receive this money, because entitlement arises from the death of a family member who failed to leave behind complete financial records.

Holders make only a limited effort to track down rightful owners, but it’s a near-impossible task for a number of reasons. Claimants often cannot be found because they’ve moved, switched jobs, changed name after marriage and divorce, or as a result of computer and clerical errors.

The  Bona Vacantia Division of the  Treasury Solicitor’s Office maintains a database of unclaimed estates which have been recently referred but not yet administered; as well as historic cases which have been administered but not yet been claimed within the 30-year time limit for doing so.
