“It’s too good to be true” – the most common objection any Probate Researcher faces when contacting those believed to be an entitled beneficiary following the death of a relative who didn’t leave a valid will.
And it’s totally understandable, right? The call has been received out of the blue concerning a relative they maybe didn’t know well, or in some cases, didn’t know at all.
It’s fair to say that alarm bells can sometimes be ringing. It’s not a once-a-day call to receive. It’s not even a once-a-year call. It’s most likely a one-in-a-lifetime call to get. This only adds to the doubt that it’s all too good to be true.
If I wasn’t in the industry, I’d probably feel the same initially if someone contacted me unexpectedly.
It is part of the job. Overcoming this initial objection is all part of the process in trying to help people claim inheritances which they are legally entitled to but may not even know about.
