173 estates left unclaimed in Bristol

If you have relatives from the county of Bristol, you may be in for a windfall without even realising it. There are currently 173 unclaimed estates in Bristol, according to the latest Bona Vacantia list. The list is of people who have died with no will or no known next of kin.

Danny Curran, MD and founder of Finders, said that the Government is “sitting on the fortunes of over ten thousand people across the UK.”

New additions to the list include Peter Capaldi, who died aged 84 in Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol, leaving an unclaimed estate. Michael Begley was born in January 1947 and died in South Gloucestershire in May 2018 aged 71.

The estate of Blanche Emily Philips will be referred to the Crown in 4 years’ time after remaining unclaimed for almost 25 years.

When somebody dies with no will – or intestate – their estate becomes a ‘vacant good’. Bona Vacantia is the name given to these ownerless estates that are then passed to the Crown.

Family members and heirs have just 12 years to claim an estate once it has been reported unclaimed to the Crown.

Here is the full list of 173 unclaimed estates in Bristol:
