Register today

Professional Executors or Administrators, Deputies or Attorneys are duty-bound to identify and discharge estate debts and liabilities. If the deceased has debts which were not apparent from their personal papers, it’s possible for those creditors to later seek payment either from the Personal Representatives or from the assets distributed to beneficiaries of the estate

To help identify estate accounts and mitigate against the risk of missed debts or liabilities, and assess potential solvency before applying for the Grant, our Credits & Liabilities Search performs an electronic check of digital credit data held by Experian, the largest Credit Reference Agency in the UK. The Credits & Liabilities Search is quick, concise and easy to understand including information on;

  • Bankruptcy, CCJs, and IVA

  • Previous Names, Previous Addresses and Financially Connected Persons

  • Open and closed current accounts, credit cards, mortgages, pay day loans and online gambling accounts

We deliver the completed Credits & Liabilities Search in as little as 24 hours identifying the account provider, account reference, account open and closing dates, so you can rapidly develop an understanding of the client’s financial affairs and make relevant enquiries to prevent debt accrual. By identifying account providers, the report also helps signpost potential estate assets and savings

  • Protection for Executors from the risk of missed liabilities
  • Reduced administrative effort and greater efficiency in identifying estate creditors
  • Helps signpost additional potential estate assets and accounts
