Missing asset searches are an important part of our estate administration service and something we strongly recommend to clients. We have recently started using Inheritance Data and have been impressed with the user-friendly system and the speed at which we receive the information. The ‘live reporting’ enables us to investigate new assets promptly ensuring we are able to progress the administration efficiently. I would highly recommend and my team would echo that!Sarah Walker, Principle Associate - Weightmans

Over the coming years, we hope to see a change in perspective so Financial Asset Searches are treated in the same respect as identity checks and, therefore, they are conducted on every estate.
When we speak to families dealing with a bereavement, they are often not confident that they’re aware of all of the deceased’s assets. By offering Inheritance Data’s Financial Asset Search alongside our probate and estate administration services, we can provide additional peace of mind that all of the deceased’s assets are located and handled accordingly. Since we started using the service, we have uncovered numerous accounts that families were unaware of. This is providing additional funds to beneficiaries and fulfilling the role and responsibility as Executor. We would highly recommend an asset search to ensure all assets are located.Nigel Merchant, Technical Manager - Kings Court Trust
Our firm have been using Inheritance Data for assets searches for a while, the website is very easy to use both to place a search and check the progress of the search. The searches often pick up assets that the Executors were not aware of, which allows us to make the necessary enquiries and ensure that the estate is dealt with in a timely manner.Rebecca Brough - Hopkins Solicitors
