Finders International speak with BBC Radio Bristol – Emma Britton

Danny Curran star of BBC1 show Heir Hunters and M.D. of Finders International spoke with Emma Britton of BBC Radio Bristol to discuss unclaimed inheritances in Bristol. We find out that Bristol has 173 unclaimed estates, according to Finders International’s interrogation of the latest Bona Vacantia list. These are estates of people who have died apparently intestate (no Will) and with no known next of kin. When somebody dies 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.
