Missing Beneficiaries


Are you the Executor of a will and worried that you cannot locate a beneficiary?

Are you the Executor of a will that gives a gift to the deceased’s “children” but you do not know for certain who his or her children are?

Is there doubt about as to the identity of someone saying they are the beneficiary?

There are many circumstances where a beneficiary may be missing, unknown or uncertain. Where this happens an Executor has to be extremely careful to discharge his or her obligations properly and in accordance with the law. Failure to do this could result in personal liability which could prove very expensive.

If you are the Executor of a will where there is any uncertainty about beneficiaries please telephone us to see how we can help.
