Intestate Estate and Asset Beneficiary Tracing

JOIN The Heir Hunters Association

The Heir Hunters Association is committed to supporting aspiring, part time or full time Heir Hunters and our membership options reflect this.

Membership or a subscription is open to you regardless of location - UK, Europe, North America, Canada, Australia. New Zealand, South America, Africa or Asia since, although inheritance laws may differ across countries, regions, counties and states many principals stay the same.

The HHA are planning to run a unique initiative for people with disabilities to train and become Heir Hunters. For details click here

Benefits of a HHA subscription and/or membership include

         Access to over 11,000 unclaimed estates updated monthly. We also show new and resolved cases from previous months and provide the file in excel format for ease of sorting. A high proportion of these estates have been with the Treasury Solicitor for a number of years and therefore not subject to the fierce competition of new listings which enables you to work through cases in your own time (you have 12 years from the date of death).

         Access to every USA State Department who handle the distribution of unclaimed estates and monies, plus investigators handbook to help locate and submit claims.

         Details of how to submit a claim to the Treasury Solicitor

         Tools to assist you in starting your Heir Hunting business

Why Join the HHA?

We often are asked by members of the public who have been approached by Heir Hunters to confirm any membership they may have with the HHA. Over 75% of enquires can receive a positive response and we copy the member our response to confirm the enquiry.

Enquiries from the public requesting a researcher to work on their behalf will be passed to a Professional Member of the HHA.

The HHA is working with a number of companies to obtain work on behalf of its Professional Members.

On-going help and support from experienced Heir Hunters.

There are no other extra costs, commissions or fees payable to HHA
