Derby Telegraph : Got one of these Derbyshire surnames? You could be in line to inherit a FORTUNE

image


The latest list of thousands of unclaimed estates in Derbyshire has been made available online - and you could make a claim to one of them today if you've got the right surname!

The Government is currently taking care of the estates because the deceased passed away without making a will or with no next of kin.

There are currently 66 unclaimed estates in Derby and Derbyshire, spread right across the county bearing 65 different surnames (there are two Smiths)

They include land in Derby, Ironville and Eckington.

Several of the estates have been listed by the Government for decades, and will revert to the Crown permanently if they remain unidentified.

According to Finders International - a specialist probate genealogist team- family members and heirs have just 12 years to claim an estate once it has been reported unclaimed to the Crown.

Any individual can check the Central Probate Registry to see if any next of kin are on the unclaimed list.

If you think that you might be the rightful heir to one of the estates listed you can find out how to make a claim for that estate here .

The list has seen an sharp increase in numbers over the past few years because Government cuts mean that there is no search for a will before an unclaimed estate is added to the list.
