Heir Hunters

The “Heir Hunters” TV series follows the work of Finders International, multiple award-winning UK Probate Research company, as we search for the heirs of people who have died without a will, leaving their estates unclaimed.

Our rewarding work has also enabled us to reunite families and provide fascinating insights into their pasts.

In addition to tracing missing beneficiaries, we also offer a range of support services helping the beneficiaries we locate with every stage and aspect of the probate or asset reunification processes.

Why have we contacted you?

As a firm of probate genealogists, Finders International trace next-of-kin and beneficiaries to estates and reunite assets with their rightful heirs. We also identify and locate owners of empty homes and property.

Our probate research teams work extensively with solicitors in private client, wills and probate and trust teams as well as with the public sector and our international partners.

If we have contacted you, this is because either we believe you may be the beneficiary we are looking for, or you may know the person or family we are seeking. Either way, the work we do is always of financial benefit to the people we trace.

We are a highly accredited firm and many staff have been trained by recognised bereavement, mental health and dementia organisations. We are regulated by the International Association of Professional Probate Researchers (IAPPR) and have numerous legally trained staff and paralegals amongst our team.
