2019 marks 20 years since the notable Evans v Westcombe case concluded in court. The case is an example of how missing beneficiaries can reappear at a later date and highlights how insurance can protect estates from future claims if known or unknown heirs reappear after distribution.
To mark the anniversary, Title Research’s latest blog revisits the case and discusses the impact that it had on missing beneficiary insurance for estate administration cases. The blog also features comments from Jeff de-Rhune, Director of Trust, Probate & Estates at Trust & Probate Insurance.
