What we do
Our task as probate researchers consists of tracing people who are entitled to a share of an estate. If they are named in a Will but cannot be found, we work to discover their whereabouts. When there is no Will and that person has died intestate, we delve into their family history to enable us to find their next-of-kin.

New recommendations to improve poor social housing standards
In 2022, it would be expected that everyone in the UK would not only have access to housing but to live somewhere safe and with the knowledge that any potential hazards or threats in the building would be resolved quickly.

MEDALLION SIGNATURE GUARANTEE
My need was highly specialised – to obtain something called a Medallion Guarantee Stamp to enable me as an Executor to sort out and sell some shares in the USA. Sally did a superb job and the service was excellent value for money. Thank you.
Julian Harty – Personal Executor/ Beneficiary
ASSET RECOVERY
Before Fraser & Fraser contacted me I knew nothing of the money that was owed to me. Through all the difficulties, lockdowns and delays caused by Covid-19 they persevered and I received the money due to me. Very happy with outcome!

PUBLIC SECTOR
I would like to thank Michael Pow, the solicitors and all involved members of the firm, for their exceptionally good service, with regards to the winding up of the estate of a relative of mine in the United Kingdom. The service that I have received from Michael, the Case Manager, has been truly remarkable, he has always kept me up to date with all matters as they progress and fully answering all the questions I had in a very thorough and professional manner. I can highly recommend Fraser and Fraser.
Mark Chadwick – Beneficiary

ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
Really brilliant service from Fraser & Fraser and in particular, Staci Pipkin. As a solicitor that deals with the administration of estates, I’ve been looking for a decent research company to assist me with my intestacy matters. Not only were Fraser & Fraser efficient but their prices were much more reasonable than other companies I’ve used in the past. I will, from now on, be directing all my probate research to Fraser & Fraser. Thanks!
