What is Probate Research?

Helping Resolve Difficult Situations

Probate research is the the process of finding the correct beneficiaries of an estate – according to relevant laws – when there is no clear Will.

Through the process of genealogy, HRM5 Investigations are able to quickly identify the correct next-of-kin to ensure that they receive their estate.

We begin by working our way back through their family tree, carefully documenting all possible beneficiaries to gain a complete picture of the family line. After this, our extensive experience as private investigators allows us to quickly locate and trace these individuals.

We can work closely with either the estate holders or solicitors to ensure that this process runs as smoothly as possible, and we guarantee that the correct target is identified based on the available data.

Call us today on 0141 6486 770 or email us at client@hrm5support.co.uk if you have any queries or would like to get the process started.
