We would be glad to answer any further questions you may have in person. Please feel free to
How much will it cost me?
As an heir you are in a win-win situation. Our fee is purely based on success. We undertake all investigations at our own expense and risk. We bear all costs related to the research we carry out and the procurement of documents. You need not lay out any money to claim your inheritance.
Furthermore, we are not entitled to a fee in the event that our investigation does not bear fruit or if the certificate of inheritance cannot - for example, due to destroyed documents – be successfully issued.
Can I inherit debts?
No! The conditional acceptance of an inheritance which is presented as standard protects you from any kind of debt.
Who commissions you?
We are usually commissioned by courts of law or notaries unable to find heirs or we take on unsolved cases in which the State's claim on inheritance threatens to come into force due to the fact that no heir has been found prior to our intervention.
If I don't act, what will happen to the inheritance?
If you do not act, the inheritance to which you are legally entitled can fall to the State or pass to the heirs known to date.
How long will it take for my inheritance to be paid out?
On average it takes one year until your inheritance can be paid out. Gathering documental proof is often a complex and lengthy process, after which the courts need more time to verify the inheritance entitlement.
