Financial Asset Searches

Undertaking a comprehensive financial asset and liability search (FAS) when administering an estate or dealing with a Mental Capacity case is not only best practice, but it can save a world of worry further down the line.

Industry best practice now strongly recommends an extensive search of financial records on every case, enabling the direct notification of hundreds of financial institutions.

Applicable to probate and court of protection practitioners, as well as executors, beneficiaries, deputies and attorneys.

The benefits of carrying out financial asset and liability searches are many and varied, including:

  • Protects the Personal Representative and the beneficiaries from the risks of missed assets or liabilities
  • Reduces administration involved in checking paperwork and contacting financial institutions
  • Ensures all assets are repatriated and redistributed to their rightful owner
  • Prevents potential financial abuse against the estate
  • Enables a search to be undertaken on a living person for statutory will purposes
  • Demonstrates the application of best practice and following recommended due diligence
