There are some fantastic stories of unclaimed estates where, when rightful heirs were eventually found, bestowed huge sums on the beneficiaries.
Take the case of Eva Paole, a retired maid from Argentina. Paole believed she could be the daughter of a baron, Rufino Otero who died in 1983 and had no children. DNA tests revealed this was true. Otero’s tomb was desecrated, and his body exchanged for another after Paole began legal proceedings, but DNA taken from his mother’s remains proved the connection. Paole eventually inherited $40 million after a nine-year legal battle.
Another rags to riches story is one that centres on two penniless down and outs who were found to the rightful beneficiaries of a £4 million fortune. Hungarian brothers Zsolt and Geza Peladi lived in a cave outside Budapest in Hungary where they scraped together money by selling scrap they found on the streets. Their mother had come from a wealthy family but had severed all ties with them. She later abandoned her children, who also included a sister living in the US.
However, when their grandmother died, the brothers and sister were found to be the rightful ...
Could you be the heir to an unclaimed estate? Put it this way, your chances of inheriting money or property are far higher than winning the lottery…
The odds of winning the Lotto jackpot are one in more than 45 million, and even five main numbers and the bonus ball are estimated at one in 7.5 million. On the other hand, the odds of inheriting an estate are far, far smaller, and while the sums of money involved probably won’t be in the retiring early, yacht-buying category, it could still mean a holiday, paying off debts, buying some furniture or redecorating the home.
What’s the first step to take if you think you could be the heir to an estate? Unclaimed estates are the results of someone dying without immediate next of kin, and that person not leaving a valid will. People don’t write wills for a variety of reasons – from not thinking they are old enough, not wanting to do something so ‘morbid’, not believing their estate is worth anything, not believing they have anyone to leave their goods to, or just not getting round to ...
To most people, the idea of an unclaimed estate seems alien. Why do houses, properties and money remain in limbo?
For the most part, this happens when someone dies and does not leave a valid will – otherwise known as dying intestate. Again, this is more common when a person has no near next of kin. That person might have outlived their spouse, and not have had children. Sometimes, people feel it isn’t worth the effort of making a will if they do not have close-by heirs to leave their worldly goods to.
However, a lack of close relatives doesn’t mean they do not have entitled beneficiaries. In some cases, this might include family members they have lost touch with or don’t know about. In terms of the laws of intestacy, lack of knowledge doesn’t disqualify someone. When a person dies intestate, probate genealogists look to the nearest relatives. This might cover siblings, and/or the families of siblings. It could spread to the maternal or paternal family tree.
In the worst-case scenario, an unclaimed estate will pass to the Crown, but the Crown and ...
