INFORMATION FOR HEIRS



The estates shown on this site remain unclaimed and are held in trust by HM Government Legal Department (Bona Vacantia Division), commenly known as BV. The list as such is public and we are not connected directly with GLD/BV or any government department.

 

This site is owned and run by the Heir Hunters Association (HHA) (www.hha-uk.com), which represents hundreds of probate and unclaimed asset researchers in the UK and abroad. Do not be confused by "clone BV" sites which appear to be offical sites of GLD/BVD these sites are run by independent commercial research companies. The HHA can be relied on to give you fair, unbiased and reliable information to enable you to make a decison to best suit you. 

 

Tracing heirs to unclaimed estates is a slow and complex business, and can be costly. Whilst heirs can claim direct with GLD/BV, there are many legal pitfalls and dangers, so heirs or potential heirs are advised to use the services of a professional researcher.

 

Using the form on any of the unclaimed estate reports enables you to make an enquiry and tell us what you know about the deceased person. Please avoid vague enquiries in the hope that because you share a deceased person’s name you must be entitled to the estate. The chances are you are NOT.


If you ARE an entitled heir and your claim can be proven, then you may inherit just a few pounds or a life-changing fortune – we can make no promises or guarantees. In the short term, please be patient and cautious; the process is slow moving as it has to be both logical and precise.

 

Check out our HELP section and browse the estates. You can search using various criteria such as:

  • Deceased person’s name(s)
  • Place and date of death
  • Place and date of birth
  • Status – bachelor, spinster, widow, widower etc
  • Partner's name (if any known)
  • Local authority that referred the estate

 

If you want to trace estates for yourself, other family members or as part of your business or profession, then you can use our system http://www.hha-bvlive.co.uk which provides more sophisticated estate tracking and stores claimed estate data.

 

Self-claimers are also advised to consider a short-term membership with the HHA to ensure they understand the legal process, risks and obligations of making a claim and administering the estate thereafter. See http://www.hha-uk.com for member details.
