We do not have a minimum charge or a minimum number of hours.
All cases are considered based on their own merits. Estimates or quotes will be provided based on the amount of work required to complete the case, rather than estate value. All quotations are provided with no obligation and we never commence research without specific instruction.
We work on either a No win, No fee basis or we charge by the hour, depending on the requirements of the case and our clients.
No Win, No Fee
This methord is popular where little or no information is known about the family of the deceased or where our clients are not in a position to commit estates monies, for example if they do not, as yet, have an administrator from whom to take instruction.
All work is carried out entirely at our risk
By using this method, no direct cost is charged to the estate. Instead any beneficiaries traced are signed to a percentage fee (between 10 and 20% depending on the amount of work carried out) of their inheritance. Upon completion, 2% of our fee is donated to a charity of the beneficiaries choice, enabling more people to benefit.
This method allows the client to stay in control of the cases progress and expenditure. We provide progress reports every six weeks, detailing findings to date, hours utilised and disbursements. On larger cases we also provide a copy of the family tree.
