Searching for next-of-kin?
We understand the steps required in arranging a public funeral.
By referring your case to us, we can trace next-of-kin at no extra cost to the Local Authority. We’ll start searching immediately. If we are able to make an agreement with the next-of-kin, and therefore have authority to handle the estate, we can then take the rest of your responsibilities off your hands.
Relatives need to be traced
We can trace next-of-kin for you. Once the Local Authority or family has arranged the funeral, we can also put Empty Property Insurance in place through our Blanket Policy.*
A search for relevant documents takes place
We can find the documents for you. Other services at this point can include: Will Search, Asset Search, House Search and House Clearance.*
Local Authority then refunded for funeral costs through the estate
