During estate administration, it’s crucial that only entitled people receive their rightful inheritance to avoid misdistribution and future claims against the estate. On intestacy, it is highly advisable to reconstruct a family tree to ensure all entitled people are included and unentitled people are excluded.
When determining the fees associated with a genealogy project, there are several things to consider; this includes the size of the family and if anyone has moved overseas, which is often unknown at the outset.
Title Research’s approach to quoting aims to provide clients with the most accurate advice. As part of their free Research Assessment Report*, they may need to determine how large one or both sides of a family tree will be or ensure that there are no missing or otherwise unknown relatives. With this information, they can estimate how many hours of research it may take to resolve the issue and provide an accurate quote.
